Kauno marios – Kaunas Lagoon

Kauno marios (English: Kaunas Lagoon) is the largest Lithuanian artificial lake created in 1959 on Neman River near Kaunas and Rumšiškės. It covers territory of 63.5 km² which is approximately 0.1% of the total territory of Lithuania. The greatest width of the lagoon is 3.3 km and the greatest depth is 22 m. In preparation of the dam opening 721 farms and villages were moved to different places. The entire Rumšiškės town was moved and now is an open air museum of traditional architecture. But nowadays it's a great place where you can take your Lomo camera and with some friends go for a swim. As you can see on the photos we took some beer and meat too. By the way, this place is terrific for the frogeye lovers! Usually during the summer Kaunas lagoon water is great. The last but not the least - don't forget to take something to fight with mosquitoes which are trying to kill you in the evening.
