Having rest and a walk

0

You should now that Vilnius is almost my second city (the first being Tallinn, indeed) so I can sometimes go there without having the need to visit it deeply.

Evening walk

Russians on the Cathedral square

Arrived in Vilnius at Pasilaiciu (stop Panorama) and had breakfast with my friend. A long one because it was cold outside and I wasn’t so motivated to move. I could rest and I was happy enough.

This is after meal that we moved for the center, tooking the bus until Alberto stop by the river. We walk to the Lukiškės Square (ex Lenine Square), I was sledging on ice and my friend could told me that she won’t bring me to hospital if I broke anything.

Then we continued on Gedimino Avenue to reach the Cathedral square. The catholic New Year’s Eve was passed but Orthodox one didn’t. The square was full of Russian, sometimes wearing traditional clothes. A couple ask Ona to take them in photo and a grandma came behind to appear on it 😀

Big igloo on the Town Hall square

After have walked in Pilies street, one of the nicest part of Vilnius, we got the Town Hall square. In front of the Town Hall building standed a huge flateble igloo in which were many bars and food stands. From the outside it was colourfull and the inside it was really warm!

Vilnius at night is beautifull

Contrary to what I do usually we haven’t seen the Gate of Dawn. Instead we went straight to the Uzupis district.

The sun was disapearing very fast, we haven’t reach the church of Saint Ona that the night was there. I couldn’t make good photos of it because my camera support was still broken (Wilanow…) but some pictures looked good. The city seemed and really empty, outside the Cathedral square and Russians meeting point we were the only visitors I guess.

Nothing special to do or to see after have said hello to the Angel of Uzupis so we came back to Pasilaiciu to take my bag and leave for Panorama where my bus had to come.
