Druskininkai boasts a special cultural heritage, and its history is largely built around its SPAs once favoured by local nobility during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Architecture fans can marvel at the regionally-unique wooden villas and townhouses or bathe in the unique aesthetics of the wellness complexes built during the Soviet occupation of Lithuania. Druskininkai is also celebrated as a town of cultural diversity with its Orthodox and Catholic churches. Art aficionados are able to follow the footsteps of Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis and Jacques Lipschitz, two cultural icons who lived in Druskininkai and respectively helped shape the landscape of European abstract art and the global cubism movement.
