Europos Parkas

There's a great sculpture park about a half hour north of Vilnius: a labor of love begun shortly after Lithuanian independence by artist Gintaras Karosas. Check out all the details here. The park is similar to Storm King Art Center in the United States. One with nature and with plenty of room for sculptures to stake out some space and invite contemplation.

Ready to check it out? (The Wall, Gintaras Karosas)

At the entrance, a present day sculpture of an historical artifact.
