Another ground 745,01 hectaresAlytus, the sixth largest Lithuanian city, is settled along both banks of the Nemunas river. The city has more than 77 000 citizens. The main roads linking Kaunas with Grodno (Byelorussia) and Vilnius with Lazdijai travel through Alytus. Traveling along the Via Baltica from Alytus to Kaunas is 70 km., whereas from Alytus to Vilnius is 105 km. This allows for quick travel from Alytus to the two main cities of Lithuania. The first written mention of Alytus dates back to 1377 in the Chronicles of Vygandas Marburgietis. On the 15th of June 1581 Alytus was granted the Magdeburg right, which allowed an area to incorporate as a city.. This day is now known as Alytus city day and is celebrated every year. The life of Alytus, an important economic and culture center, was inseparable from all the events of Lithuania. Historical events divided Alytus into two parts: Alytus I and Alytus II. The east-side was transferred to the Russian Empire, the west to Prussia. After its victory against Napoleon, Russia occupied all of Alytus but the differences in administration remained until 1863. During W.W.I in 1915, when the German military administration consolidated its position in Lithuania and the Suwalki province, Alytus I and Alytus II were united into one – Alytus town. But even now the smaller town is called Alytus I and the town with the parks, micro districts and industry – Alytus II.
ALYTUS – the center of the southern part of Lithuania, Alytus is often called the capital of Dzukija (the southern region of Lithuania). Although Alytus is situated on both sides of the Nemunas River, the greater part of the city is on the left bank. The population of Alytus is approximately 78,000. Alytus is the sixth largest city in Lithuania and is an important industrial and cultural center.
Although the concentration of regional industry in Alytus only began in 1963, the town itself is over 400 years old. On June 15, 1981, Alytus celebrated the anniversary of the day when, in 1581, the King of Poland and the Grand Duke of Lithuania granted Alytus the rights of a town. However, the history of Alytus dates back even farther. According to archeological data, there were already people living in the area during the New Stone Age. A mute witness of the past is the hill on the right bank of the Nemunas at the confluence with the Alytupis River. A wooden castle which was first mentioned in 1377 once stood on this hill. The castle was plagued by frequent attack, as one of the main roads of the Crusaders to Vilnius ran through the area. In 1422, the Treaty of Melne was signed after long debate. It was by this treaty that the Order of the Crusaders recognized both banks (not just the right bank) of the Nemunas in this area to be Lithuanian territory. Thereafter, the infabitants began to settle on the left bank and the castle eventually fell into decay.
Once Alytus was formerly established as a town in 1581, it began to grow more rapidly. At the end of the 18th century, the number of people living on either side of the Nemunas was nearly the same, although the right bank has always been the leader in trade and commerce.
