From 1989-91, during the restoration of Lithuanian independence, many ideologized monuments from the Soviet times were dismantled and put in one place which is now called Grutas park. The aim of this exposition is to provide an opportunity for Lithuanian people, visitors coming to our country as well as future generations to see the naked Soviet ideology which suppressed and hurt the spirit of Lithuanian nation for many decades.
