Vilnius - Center of Lithuania

This is a city where I discovered more and more as I continued to scratch the surface, including the odd Republic of Užupis.

  • A state of mind

    The freewheeling republic of Užupis reminds me of Christiania in Copenhagen.

  • Not Pisa

    The cathedral square features a tall belfry, the only remains of the old wall around the square.

  • Amuse me, muses

    Drama, Comedy and Tragedy. Only three they are.

  • The red tower

    This is Gediminas Hill where the city was founded. It has featured a red-brick tower since the 13th century.

  • Bricks bricks

    The beautiful church features 33 different kinds of bricks and it is said that Napoleon wanted to bring it back with him to Paris.

  • Bricks of old

    The defensive wall was finished in 1522, featuring ten gates and five towers. Today only a small section remains.
