Adomas Mickevičius in Kaunas – literary route
During the tour around Kaunas with “Our Odyssey”, we will get acquainted with the poet’s life and work. We will visit the former Jesuit College, where the poet worked and lived, the museum dedicated to him, located in the Perkūnas House, which is one of the most valuable late Gothic buildings in Lithuania. Legend has it that this house belonged to the Hanseatic merchants’ organization, but the prevailing opinion is that the house was built by a rich townsman Steponas Dulkė, who in 1546 sold the house to the mayor of the city, Bernard Bitner. Three brothers Kojalavičiai grew up in this house, who later became Jesuits’. One of them is Albertas, the author of the first Lithuanian history in Latin. Upon request, we will have the opportunity to climb to the Jesuit Church observation deck and admire the panorama of the Old Town as if from a bird’s eye view. We will also be in a place dear to the poet’s heart – in the valley of Adomas Mickevičius. Throughout the tour, you will be accompanied by the poems written by the author.
