rokiskis_60Rokiškisis a city in northeastern Lithuania  with population of about 16,000. Citizens of Rokiskis celebrate the 500 anniversary of the city (1999).

rokiThe legend of the founding of Rokiškis tells about a hunter called Rokas who had been hunting for hares (Lt."kiškis"). However, cities ending in "-kiškis" are quite popular in the region.

rokisThe city was first mentioned in 1499 . At first it was Prince Kroszinski's residence, later counts Tyzenhaus build a beautiful neogothic church of St. Matthias and a castle which is well preserved today and houses Rokiškis Regional Museum. The town was planned in a classicism manner.

The city started to grow in 1873 when a railroad was built which connected Dvinsk/Dunaburg/Daugavpils to the east with the ice-free Baltic port of Libau/Liepaja. Situated on the Daugavpils-Liepaja railroad, during the 19th Century Rokiškis served as a commercial center for a large rural area and a point for the export of wood, grain, and flax.

Rrokiskokiškis is well-known for its cheese. "Rokiškio sūris" is one of the largest cheese manufacturing companies in Lithuania. It grew from a small local dairy established in 1925 . In 1964 Soviets built a specialized factory. At present after reconstructions and foreign capital investments, its sales reach 400 million litas (about 155 million USD). 60% of the production are sold in foreign markets. The company is a very important employer in the region. It is also an important supporter of community initiatives.

rokiskisThe forests, which are considered the richest for the hunters in the whole country, comprise an area of 46,2 thousand ha in the region. There are 99 lakes, 62 ponds, 42 rivers flow through the region.

There are more than 300 immovable cultural values in the region. The landscape is decorated by 27 mounds and barrows, 19 church ensembles, 17 former manor homesteads. Special attention of the many tourists is paid to one of the biggest and the richest museums in the country – Rokiskis regional museum, located in the former Rokiskis manor estate, Rokiskis St. Matthew's church – the most beautiful neo-gothic ensemble in Lithuania, Rokiskis St. Matthew's church the most explicit and valuable urban monument in the country – Rokiskis city Independence square.

roThe impressive cultural heritage of the region encourages the cultural workers of the region to carry out active work.
