It is symbolic that the head office of the central bank of the Republic of Lithuania – the Bank of Lithuania – is based in the heart of Vilnius, in a building that was erected in the late 19th century and, for the first time in our country, designed specifically for a bank. In 2003, the Bank of Lithuania building in Vilnius was included into the Register of Immovable Cultural Valuables of the Republic of Lithuania.
The old Bank of Lithuania building in Kaunas is prominent in the history of national central banking – it now houses one of our organisation’s cash management divisions. The cornerstone of the building was laid down in early 1925, and already in late 1928 the completed building of the Bank of Lithuania was consecrated by prelate Jonas Mačiulis-Maironis.
While exploring the Bank of Lithuania buildings in Vilnius and Kaunas, visitors are particularly drawn to the bank’s art collection. It consists of over 130 works of art, featuring paintings, graphic art and sculptures.
