Monument to the Grand Duke
Gediminas lived from 1275 to 1341 and ruled the Grand Duchy of Lithuania for 25 years. He was the founder of the capital, Volna, which he had moved, and Trakai. He was known to maintain good diplomatic relations with Europe and managed to expand beyond the Eastern and Southern borders. The monument to the Grand Duke was created by the Lithuanian American artist Vytautas Kasuba.
