St. Michael Angel (Garnizon)

Church of Michael Angel is beautiful in all seasons. This is a summer picture. You can see it from the Town Square. The people suffered a lot during the last world wars and beyond. The country went through painful experiences while struggling for freedom and independence.

I like Vilnius very much. It a relatively calm town full of historical monuments and people are natural and not overly tourist conscious. One can walk and walk, have a coffee and continue to walk again - you wll find the cultural treasures and historical monuments everywhere.

A view of Vilnius from the Hill of Three Crosses

Its a wonderful over view of Vilnius. I think Vilnius Old Town is one of the most beautiful districts in the world. The whole town conserved the beauty, orderly streets and balanced architecture.

Presidential Palace

Its a wonderful view of beautiful Presidential Palace. The President must be very happy to be here.

Indeed, I found it one of the most beautiful public buildings in the world.

    Toshio, lovely little page about the Lithuanian capital here. Unfortunately, on both my visits of Vilnius I missed a visit of the Hill of Three Crosses.
