Town Hall Square. Before Town Hall Square came into existence in 1990, the central part of Alytus town comprised of the triangular Komsomol Square (from 1954) and the Market Square in front of it, which used to host regular markets.

Going down Vidzgirio street towards Pulko street on the left Jewish genocide cemetery may be found. During the Word War II, when Alytus was occupied by Germans, Jewish people were shot in Vidzgiris forest and buried in common graves.
The Punia pinewood is curved by a 19 km winding of the Nemunas River. The highest pine of Lithuania grows there, centuries-old trees of the oak alley are granted names of Lithuania's grand dukes.
59. Klepočių kryžiai. V. Skendelio nuotr..JPG
The cross ensemble to commemorate the tragedy of Klepočiai Village was built in 1990; a little later two more ensembles appeared. In 1944, on Christmas Eve, the punitive units of the NKVD troops destroyed almost the entire village in order to intimidate and break the resistance of its residents to the Soviet occupation in Alytus County. They burnt 21 homesteads (out of 32 existing homesteads), shot or burnt alive 12 villagers.
