Description: Nacionalinis Stadionas

Construction of Lithuania’s national stadium began in 1987, along a 1985 design by Algimantas Nasvytis. After foundations were laid, the project was put on hold, however, as regime change came to Lithuania.

In 2007 the government decided to return to the plan, continuing where previous authorities left the stadium. Design was updated by team of the same architect in 2008 and works were restarted. Not for long, though. Before significant change could be seen, lack of financing put the project back on the shelf again.

Another approach came in 2013. This time the 25,000-capacity single-tier bowl is to be built by 2016, largely thanks to financial support of the European Union. But the budget, estimated at LTL 270 back in 270, raised to nearly 400 million in 2014.
