Town Hall of Kaunas
The building of the Kaunas Town Hall was begun in XVI century. It is believed that it was one storied at that time, without the tower and with arched cellars. In the second part of the XVI century the Town Hall was expanded by building the second story and an eight-storied tower.
During its long existence, it was an orthodox church, a Russian theatre, the firefighters' house, and even a Czar residence. In the second part of the XX century a project for the restoration of the Town Hall and its adaptation to hold marriage ceremonies was presented.
Now the Town Hall is used not only for marriage ceremonies, but also to receive honorable city guests, to sign treaties, and for official city events. The Kaunas Town Hall is called a White Swan, and it has already been standing in the Old City Square for 460 years and giving joy to the locals and guests with its inimitable beauty.

- This is getting a bit more scvjeutibe, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like Mixview' that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you're listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of neighbors will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune Social is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
