The employees of the VMU Military History Centre together with other partners from Kaunas have accomplished numerous important tasks: the production of the film “Kauno tvirtovė” (eng. Kaunas Fortress) by A.Barysas is just about to be accomplished, the preparation of the monograph “Kauno tvirtovė 1878 - 1915 m.” (eng. Kaunas Fortress in 1878-1915) by the expert V.Orlovas and the atlas “Kauno tvirtovė 1882 - 1915 m.” (eng. Kaunas Fortress in 1882-1915) by the architect J.Lukšė for publication has almost been completed.

The final agreement on the creation of TIS (Transnational Information System) and TDICF (Transnational Inventorisation and Documentation Centre Fortresses) has been reached in Gdańsk. VMU and Kaunas County Regional Archive have concluded the cooperation agreement aimed at establishing a high quality transnational information centre in Kaunas. This would hopefully help to collect as much information on the Kaunas Fortress as possible from different Lithuanian and foreign archives.
