Vilnius is the capital of Lithuania and its largest city. Actually it is the second biggest city of the Baltic countries. To tell the truth, when i came here i didn’t know much about this city, i wanted to discover it not from the travel guides, but on my own. This was the best idea i’ve ever had! The first thing that i’ve seen from the plane was the old town. The airplane passed just near it and i’ve seen how beautiful is Vilnius. I’ve seen the Gediminas Tower, many parks, buildings different from architectural point of view. I will begin my travel guide from the “Green Bridge” or “Žaliasis tiltas” – the oldest bridge in the city. The bridge features four sculptures in Soviet realistic style. Each features two people, representing social classes idealized by the Communist authorities: soldiers, workers, farmers and students.
I think that it will be fair if my first post will be about Lithuania, the country where i’m living at the moment. I’m here since the end of August 2014.
The reason of being here is my Erasmus year. At the beginning it was supposed to be just one semester, but i fell in love with this place and i decided to stay more time.
I’m studying in Vilnius and this city has everything: new buildings, soviet type constructions, old town, parks, monuments, museums, a lot of fancy places and traditional ones, pubs, restaurants and the list can go on.
In this post i will write about the places from where you can admire the beauty of Vilnius. I will put them in order of preferences:
My name is Loredana and I decided to try blogging. It is something new for me, so all your critics are welcome but don’t be too cruel. I love travelling, this is a big part of my life and I will try to make you part of my trips.
Hope you will enjoy it!
