Kaunas Žalgiris Arena is one of the largest arenas and entertainment venues in the Baltic states, located in Kaunas, the second biggest city in Lithuania. A breathtaking opening of arena took place on 2011 18th of August. The arena is new, modern and innovative – definitely a worthy tourist attraction.

By far the most expected event to be held at the arena is the EuroBasket 2011championship.
