Two new exhibitions are now in place at Vilnius International Airport (VIA). The Lithuanian Central State Archives (LCSA) presents exhibits from two LCSA photodocument collections, i.e. “Lithuania - the Name of Freedom”, dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the restoration of Lithuania’s independence, and “The Curonian Spit”, which displays photos dating back to the 1920s -1930s.
The exhibition commemorating the restoration of Lithuania’s independence is displayed in a sterile area in the departures hall between the third and fourth departure gates. The exhibition reveals about 170 photodocuments, which reflect life in Lithuania throughout the twenty years since the restoration of independence, and a copy of the Act of the Restoration of Independence, the original of which is safeguarded at the Lithuanian State Modern Archives.
This traveling exhibition was displayed at the Lithuanian Government’s building and at various Lithuanian schools.
The photo exhibition “The Curonian Spit” is displayed in a sterile area at the passenger check-in in the transfer area, which is behind the security check post. The black-and-white photos reveal the life of the Curonians, their fishery and ships and images of dunes, and the seaside from the beginning of the 20th century.
Passengers to VIA will be able to enjoy the exhibits during the summer.
