Lithuanian Satirical Playing Cards
The political changes that occurred in Lithuania since the regaining of independence in 1990 exerted impact on all spheres, media system included. Thus, censorship was lifted and state ownership of media was abolished. In Lithuania, the liberation of the print media began in the 1990s when the government discreetly agreed to stop interfering with the media. Lithuania first entered the EuroVision Song Contest in 1994.
Albinas says: About card's history in Lithuania - there is very little information. I know of only 5 other Lithuanian packs since 1990. Most of the older packs, were destroyed in the war. About old cards (till 1940) - there are only 6 packs I know of in Lithuania which, of course, are very scarce.
