The monument to Frank Zappa
That’s right. The peculiar fact is that Zappa never did visit Lithuania, nor did he have anything in common with this Baltic country. But when Lithuania gained independence from the Soviets, people wanted to do something with their new-found freedom. So did Saulius Paukštys, who thought that in a free country, one could have a monument to Frank Zappa built if he found other people who supported the idea too. And so he did. The world’s first monument to Zappa was erected in the Lithuanian capital. If you’re in Vilnius, be sure to drop by: K. Kalinausko Street 1.
