The Little Mosque in the Park

This small mosque is located in Ramybės Park near where I live in Kaunas.  It was built in 1930 for the Islamic Tartar population, which originally immigrated to Lithuania under Grand Duke Vytautas the Great in the 14th century.  The current Muslim population is quite small, but the mosque has been restored and re-opened after serving as a storage facility during the Soviet years.
