St. Michael the Archangel Church, Kaunas, Lithuania.
From VisitKaunas.lt: the 70-m tall white Christ’s Resurrection Basilica (Žemaičių g. 31A) is one of the best-recognized symbols of Kaunas and the largest monumental church in the Baltics. Its history almost ideally coincides with the history of the Lithuanian nation in the 20th century, at the same time, it seems that the prolonged construction of this symbol of independent and robust Lithuania gives sense to its purpose. The construction process was interrupted by the Soviet occupation (almost half a century the church operated as a radio engineering factory). The strength of the church consists of many people’s efforts and small details. The impressive fact is that the Latvian-born architect Karolis Reisonas had converted to Catholicism for this project.
