River 'Nevezis' In The Centre of Panevezys
The most popular place in Panevezys is the part of the rive Nevezis, which lays in the centre of Panevezys & is called 'Senvage'.All bigger events or concerts(if they are held outside) take place somewhere near this place.There are some small islands decorated with sculptures & big trees.This is also very popular place to take wedding pics:)
Russian orthodox church
There are of course several churches and cathedral in Panevezys but this small Russian Orthodox Church is my favourite. There is also an old grave yard but I have not found my great-grandfather's grave. I first spotted the church when I was on the bus coming from Kaunas.
Near the Holy Trinity church which is on Nepriklausomybes square. The Russian church is on T. Tilvycio gatve.
up and coming town
At first, this city has a definate " blue collar, working class" feel to it. Auto repair shops, small factories and the ubiquitous Soviet era flats dominate the town. A few restaurants and cafes as well as places which sell beer and other drink also add to the local colour. However, just on the outskirts of the town some rather " up scale" looking, modern private homes, many of them rather spacious looking with 3 storeys with room to spare seem to be mushrooming in the area. This is a town which one would go to only if a cousin or relative were living here or in transit on a bus rather than making a special trip to this city. If others have a different impression I gladly welcome their comments!

In September 2003 the city celebrates its 500th anniversary. It is situated midway between Vilnius and Riga. Unfortunately the city has been distroyed in both wars so that only few old buildings remain.
On the pictures there is freedom square. The County Tourism Information center is in Laisves no. 11 (phone/fax +370 45 50 80 80 or 81, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Panevezys is suited for an overnight stop or as a base for daytrips into the surrounding countryside.
