Almost every Lithuanian settlement, a town and a larger village, has a church. There is even a separate Lithuanian word meaning a church-town "Village with a Catholic church" (bažnytkaimis).

Visaginas and Elektrėnai were conceived and built by the Soviets together with a major power plant nearby.

20th-century mobile warfare and air force advances made them supplanted by compact hidden installations, manned by several soldiers. Such buildings may be found in woods near Vilnius (built by the Poles in the 1930s) and the underground Plokštinė Soviet nuclear missile base in Samogitia (built by the Soviets). In the forests, you may also see modest secret bases of Lithuanian anti-Soviet partisans. There were makeshift defensive installation of partisans (earthwork damp home) deep forests.

Kretinga Museum is housed in the nice palace of Count Tiškevičius with a winter garden.

Thematically, the most “Lithuanian” museums are the Amber Museum (inside the Palace of noblemenTiškevičiai), the Museum of Lithuanian history (inside Trakai Island Castle), the Museum of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania (inside the Grand Dukes‘ Palace in Vilnius), the Museum of Lithuanian folk musical instruments (in Kaunas Old Town), the Museum of Basketball (in Joniškis).
