Sveikatingumo Parkas

This extraordinary example of post-war Soviet thinking was at one time a socially-designed space for the healthy benefit of the common people although it no longer sees regimental rows of model Soviet citizens doing endless press-ups in Hungarian designer tracksuits. Once planted with flora designed for their health-giving properties and featuring a café and outdoor swimming pool, the park has since independence fallen into serious disrepair although it’s still open to the public. An investment of 1.5Lt million has been put aside for its regeneration, with Japanese gardens, a new bathhouse and pretty paths and benches all promised in the near future. The lovely mosaic by the entrance dates from 1962 and is the work of the Lithuanian artist Marija Mačiulienė (b. 1929).
