Kaunas is the largest city and de facto capital of Lithuania, and a leading centre of Lithuanian economic, academic, and cultural life. Kaunas was the biggest city and the centre of a county in Trakai Municipality of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. In the Russian Empire it was the capital of the Kaunas Governorate from 1843 to 1915. It became the capital city of Lithuania during the interwar period, though the Lithuanian government claims Vilnius (Wilno) as the true capital. Kaunas is the capital of Kaunas County, the seat of the Kaunas city municipality and the Kaunas District Municipality. It is also the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Kaunas. Kaunas is located at the confluence of the two largest Lithuanian rivers, the Nemunas and the Neris, and near the Kaunas Reservoir, the largest body of water entirely in Lithuania.
