Monument "Angel of Freedom"
The "Angel of Freedom" monument was built for the first time in 1928 to commemorate the first decade of Lithuanian independence. The famous Dzukai (inhabitants of south Lithuania) sculptor Antanas Aleksandravicius is the author of the sculpture. The monument went through several tests of nature and history: in 1934 it was struck and broken down by the lightning (restored after three years later). Later, in the fifties the Angel of Freedom was pulled down again for political reasons. In 1991, the statue was again restored.
