JONAS JABLONSKIS GYMNASIUM (FORMER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL)

Aušros g. 3, Kaunas

The construction of schools was one of the most important tasks of modernizing social infrastructure in interwar Lithuania, which was in line with the general European trends. This school had a first-class reputation from the very start because it was built in the vicinity of the envisaged Resurrection Church. For perhaps the very first time in Lithuania the school’s structure followed the progressive principle of functional zoning. The first and only swimming pool in Lithuania was installed there. J.
