Architects from Kaunas (Lithuania) and St. Petersburg (Russia) began to create the city of Visaginas in 1975. At that time, this was one of the most modern infrastructure projects. In an area not yet affected by civilization, the creation of an exclusive environment for nuclear power plant workers, who had a different cultural vision has begun, which is still evident by urban planning and architectural solutions.

The youngest city in Lithuania was designed and built in accordance with a single architectural concept covering all three districts of the city. Distinctive features of the city are apartment buildings, inserted into the forest, preserved pine forests and urban structures adapted to the natural landscape. There are no private houses in this extremely compact pedestrian city - it is a chain of non-standard, multi-storey apartment houses.
