Ežerėlis (   ; literally: little lake) is a city in Kaunas County, Lithuania. It is located 25 km (16 mi) west of Kaunas. It is a fairly new settlement as it started developing only in 1918 when a peat digging enterprise was established in the Ežerėlis Bog.[1] According to the census of 1923, it had 132 residents. In 1959 the town reached the population of 2,200 and remained fairly stable since then.[1]
