Memorial sculpture to Vytautas Kernagis

Built in 2009, author Romualdas Kvintas
The sculpture is dedicated to the pioneer of Lithuanian sung poetry, performer and songwriter Vytautas Kernagis. Nida was chosen to memorialise the maestro as he had been the symbol of the Neringa summer season opening feast “Ben, let’s sail to Nida” for many years. The sculptor has depicted life-size Kernagis with his key attribute – a guitar. Everyone is welcomed to sit down next to the maestro and take a picture. The Kernagis sculpture is situated in the centre of Nida, near the lagoon. A mini concert space, the Bards’ Square, has been arranged next to the sculpture.
