Visaginas was initiated in 1975 by architects from Kaunas (Lithuania) and St. Petersburg (Russia), making it one of the most modern infrastructure projects at the time. In a territory untouched by civilization, a unique environment was created for the employees of the nuclear power plant, who had a different cultural vision—this is still evident in the city's urban planning and architectural solutions.


The youngest city in Lithuania was designed and built following a cohesive architectural concept that covered all three city microdistricts. A distinctive feature of the city is the apartment buildings integrated into the forest, preserving the pine groves, with urban structures adapted to the natural terrain. In this highly compact pedestrian-friendly city, there are no private houses—instead, there is an array of non-standard, multi-story apartment buildings.


Explore the spaces of the first microdistrict of Visaginas and immerse yourself in the city's history, which began in the pine fields, with the first stone and the first house.
