Physical Aspects: 

The garden is lyre-shaped and divided into the three levels, the highest of which features a balustrade. It features a fountain dedicated to Birutè, the Grand Dutchess of Lithuania whose son, Grand Duke Vytautas the Great, is revered as a national hero. Dr. Vincas Kudirka and Maironis have busts within the garden that commemorate their contributions to the nation's revival. Dr. Jonas Basanavičius, “Patriarch of the Nation”, has his cultural contributions commemorated by a bust, as well. There are two trident-shaped pillars present within the garden, the Pillars of Gediminas, that celebrate Gediminas' founding of the capital and the long rule of his dynasty. The lowest level ends in two staircases seperated by plants.
