About City

Šiauliai - is the fourth largest city in Lithuania. Unofficially, the city is the capital of Northern Lithuania. It is served by Šiauliai International Airport. The city was first mentioned in written sources as Soule in Livonian Order chronicles describing the battle of Saule. The city's founding date is now considered to be September 22, 1236, the same date when the battle took place, not far from Šiauliai. After the battle of Grunwald in 1410, the raids stopped and Šiauliai started to develop as an agricultural settlement. In 1445, a wooden church was built. It was replaced in 1634 with the brick church which can be seen in the city center today. Šiauliai was granted Magdeburg city rights in 1589. In the 16th century it became an administrative center of the area.


The credit for the city's rebirth goes to Antoni Tyzenhaus (1733–1785) who after a violent revolt of peasants of the Crown properties in the Northern Lithuania started the radical economic and urban reforms. He decided to rebuilt the city according to the Classicism ideas: at first houses were built randomly in a radial shape, but Tyzenhaus decided to build the city in an orderly rectangular. Šiauliai grew to become a well-developed city, with several prominent brick buildings.


In XIX century the city grew and became an important educational and cultural center. Also, infrastructure was rapidly developing: in 1836–1858 a road connecting Riga and Tilsit was built, in 1871 a railroad connecting Liepāja with Romny was built. Šiauliai, being in a crossroad of important merchant routes, started to develop as an industrial town. Already in 1897 it was the third largest city in Lithuania with population of about 16,000.


During World War I, about 65% of the buildings were burned down and the city center was destroyed. After the war and re-establishment of Lithuania, the importance of Šiauliai grew. Before Klaipėda was attached to Lithuania, the city was second after Kaunas by population size. By 1929 the city center was rebuilt. Modern utilities were also included: streets were lighted, it had public transportation, telephone and telegraph lines, water supply network and sewer. During World War II the Jewish population was reduced from 8,000 to 500. About 80% of the buildings were destroyed.
