Vilnius has a lot of churches I didn’t get photos of all of them. For the most they are Catholic churches, but there some orthodox churches today.
Church of St. Anne roman Catholic church. A prominent exemple of gothic styles. And it helped enable the district to be included in the UNESCO World Heritage list. There was amazing and wonderful architecture inside.
In Vilnius I had a lot of very tasty food. Some of ut I tried just because it looked great, but I also wanted to try some propper Lithuanian food. It has a lot in common with it’s Baltic contries, Polish, German and Ukranian.
A lot of the Lithuanian food is quite heavy and not the tings you usually would choose on a hot summers day. Especially the potato dishes is quite filling, when served with sour cream and bacon. Potatos and pork is a lot of their cuisine.
I also tried some borcht the nice beetroot soup. And quite a lot of the Lithuanian beer, that did the trick in the heat.
The previous weekend I went for a long weekend in Vilnius, Lithuania to attend a friends wedding. I had a lovely time over there and got to see some of the sights the town has to offer, tasted some good food and one of the perks about going was that the weather actually acted like it was summer.
It wasn’t a relaxing trip, there was a lot to see and do, and not to much time to do everything. But I think I managed to squeeze in quite a lot in the short while and I got to spend some time in the company of good friends.
Vilnius was a lovely city. Getting there is usually not to difficult, but unfortunantly for us the airport in Vilnius was closed for the time we were there, so we had to fly to the city of Kaunas an hour away. This was quite a set-back and made the travel a lot more stressfull.We used a car service to drive us to the airport and back, if we we hadn’t it would have been even worse.
Vilnius was a very clean city and there was a lot fewer tourists around due to the fact that the airport was closed. There was also more casinos and strip clubs around than I am used to seing in other cities I’ve been to.
