9 in stock


Kaunas Lagoon (Lithuanian: Kauno marios) is the largest Lithuanian artificial lake, created in 1959 by damming the Nemunas River near Kaunas and Rumšiškės.

In anticipation of the reservoir’s creation, 721 farms and villages were moved to various locations. The entire town of Rumšiškės was relocated and is now an open-air ethnographic museum.

In 1992, in order to protect the local environment and cultural heritage, Kaunas Reservoir Regional Park was established. A yacht club operates in the park.
