Brief information about the guide Saulius: I’ve always been interested in history, but I didn’t understand at school how to make money from it. In fact, now I also think learning a history is not a „daily bread“, but the beginning of self-knowledge. Only when history begins to connect with your living environment, the people who live and have lived around you, you begin to not only understand yourself and those around you, but you share that knowledge with other people as well. Let me introduce myself- I am a guide – a part of my city or town, my country or land, state or world. I am someone who feels the multifaceted connection of the past with the present and has the courage to send the vectors of the future publicly, sincerely and cheerfully.
