My parents in the Baltic States


A short post to tell that my parents visited me in Lithuania. I had a reason to make countless of news photos, by using the famillial camera. Seven days in Vilnius where we been in the most touristics places.

The trip

I planed their all travel from Paris to Vilnius. I picked up them in Kaunas Internationnal Airport and I drove to Vilnius, we were arrived at 2am friday.

They spend one week in Vilnius, capital of Lithuania where I am curently working. Before the short trip to Tallinn and Riga for just three days they had seven days in the capital. I booked for them a very confortable hotel in the center of the city. Well situated with only two minutes by walk to the Cathedral and almost on the touristique street of Vilnius Pilies gatve. On the whole, they liked the city and their visit despite they don’t really speak english (and no russian nor lithuanian). The only bad point was at the time it is mainly cloudy, rainy and a bit cold. I forgot.. days are now very short, this is why it was much more complicated to visit thecity with them during the day because of my job.

I managed to show them the most importants place of the city. For the first night we had walk on the mains streets, Pilies and Gediminas avenue, we have seen the University of Vilnius and President Palace. For other places like the Gedimina’s tower and churchs they had to wait for the day after. Otherwise they were as surprised as me about the huge amount of cathedrals and churchs in the city, they are everywhere.
