It's an interactive project that will give Vilnius residents and guest the opportunity to "receive calls" to their smartphones from Vilnius Downtown statues which will speak Lithuanian and English and several of them will speak Ukrainian, French and Yiddish, Vilnius Municipality said on Thursday.

Every sculpture will have its distinctive voice "borrowed" from famous Lithuanian artists, singers, actors and other well-known personalities. The texts for the sculpture have also been written by famous Lithuanian people.

The idea has already been implemented in Copenhagen, London and Manchester.
