The Lukiškės Prison, which has stood right in the heart of the city since 1902, turned into the Alternative Christmas Courtyard during the Christmas period. The courtyard of the prison complex open the gates to reveal a world of impressive architecture. It is going be filled with bright and colourful light installations, which will light up the entire courtyard, transforming it into a interesting space every evening. The Alternative Christmas Courtyard also offer its visitors a water sculpture, which is served as an alternative Christmas Tree, and the interactive swings.

Getting a chance to take a sneak peak into this recently closed area is a real Christmas present for curious adventurers and fans of celebrating Christmas in an alternative way.
