One thing which always fascinated me on my trips to the Ex-Sovietunion countries is the Soviet-style architecture.

Of course the Baltic countries which are nowadays members of the European Union want to get rid of these odd remains of the past as soon as possible.

Nevertheless in summer 2006 we could still find some Soviet style buildings, even in the pedestrianised city centre of Siauliai.

One interesting example is the Soviet-era tower block hotel "Siauliai" at Draugystes 25 which is nowadays a modern 3 star hotel. During Soviet times it was used to house government and KGB officials.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
