    Background: Vilnius...

    One of the Europe's most beautiful cities...

    It's highest point is the watch-tower of Gediminas Castle, once the stronghold of that Lithuanian Prince. From the castle one can see a panorama of the city...

    Its magnificent architectural monuments...

    As all other soviet cities, Vilnius is growing rapidly.

    ...The urban Development Institute.

    The Lithuanian architects are confronted with the difficult task of blending the new districts of Vilnius with the medieval old.

    This has to a considerable extent been achieved by Bronyus Kruminis and Birute Kasperavichene who designed the Zhirmunai housing estate.

    A residentive area for 15 thousand inhabitants, Zhirmunai stretches along the banks of the Neris River.

    Though the houses are relatively close to one another, the architects managed to create atmosphere of space.

    Harmony, reserve and laconic form is the hall-mark of blocks at Zhirmunai.

    On the estate the maximum of convenience has been created... particularly for the kiddies.

    The designers of Zhirmunai have been decorated with the 1968 State Award for architecture.
