AB Underground Printing House

  Spaustuvės 2, Saliai      (+370) 60 18 65 21     14 Apr 2019

Established and run at great personal risk by the late Vytautas Andziulis (1930-2018) and Juozas Bacevičius (1918-1995), during the last decade of the Soviet occupation the AB Underground Printing House operated under a greenhouse in Andziulis’ garden on the outskirts of the city. Dug by hand between 1978 and 1980, during its lifespan the printing house published 23 clandestine titles dealing with subjects ranging from Lithuanian history to religion and poetry, all on a hand-cranked machine built from miscellaneous spare parts. Difficult to get to without a car, bus Nº21 runs a handful of buses every day to Saliai from the Kauno Pilies stop in Old Town, although the trip needs to be planned carefully if you don't want to wait a couple of hours to get back to the city.
