Rumšiškės is a Lithuanian town (population 1,700), situated
20 km (12 mi) east of Kaunas on the northern bank of Kaunas
Reservoir. Southern part of the town (including the birthplace of Lithuanian
poet Jonas Aistis) is now under the waters of the artificial lake. The 18th
century St. Michael Archangel church of Rumšiškės (rebuilt in 19th century) was
saved and moved to its present place in 1958, when the reservoir was created.
