The Čiurlionis House is one of the most famous buildings in Savičiaus Street. It is the ground-floor flat where the painter and composer Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis lodged between October 1907 and June 1908. Today, the house is a museum

On the same street is the Church of Our Lady, Comfort of the Afflicted, attached to the former Augustinian friary which was founded here in the second half of the 17 century. This church with a single tower is built in the mid-18th century
