During the Soviet era, the park was established on the grounds of the 17th-century city cemetery, and burials were moved to a new one. Now it features 117 sculptures created over a 15-year period by 61 renowned Lithuanian artists. Wander through the shady, tree-filled 10-hectare (24-acre) green space and check out modern works like the abstract white-marble Ecce Homo by Vladas Vildžiūnas. There are also older monuments here as well, including one at the northern end of the park that commemorates Soviet soldiers who died in World War II.
