Lithuania’s second largest city Kaunas marked its 612th anniversary on May 23.

Due to the coronavirus, the city opted for more unique ways to mark the occasion – from music shows in courtyards of apartment blocks, to dance shows in the town’s suburbs.

Kaunas Wind Orchestra also performed a rendition of Lithuania's Eurovision song, On Fire by The Roop.

The schedule and programme for the festival were not published beforehand, inviting people to explore the city and avoid gathering in pre-defined locations.

The day's recap can be seen in a video published by Kaunas municipality, below.
