Kaunas, Lithuania

Sent from Kaunas in Lithuania on 30 October 2009, this card shows a fountain in Laisvės Avenue, one of the longest pedestrian streets in Europe.  Kaunas is the second largest city in Lithuania and was the capital for a time.  In 1897, only 6% of the population was ethnic Lithuanian.  Now the proportion is 93%.  That must be remarkably high for any large city.

Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
