Nemuno7 is the original name of a dredger used to deepen the riverbed of Nemunas. Built in 1965 in what was then Czechoslovakia, it can no longer be used for its intended purpose due to outdated technology, harmful to the river ecosystem.
Instead of scrapping the object, a more sustainable solution has been chosen: to transform it into a cultural space. It invites people to reflect on the theme of water from an artistic, historical or scientific perspective.
The transformed dredger is situated in Zapyškis, on the left bank of Nemunas. It has openend in the spring of 2022.
The project is part of Kaunas European Capital of Culture 2022 programme.
