Sovietic-era buildings and other relicts, Vilnius: 11 reviews and 20 photos
What always fascinated me on my trips to the Ex-Soviet bloc countries is the Soviet style architecture of the early post war period.
Unfortunately, nowadays there isn't much left of the Soviet era in Vilnius.
An impressive example from this time is the grey Palace of Concerts and Sports (Koncertu ir sporto rumai). It was built in 1971 and is known for its vessel like exterior.
With a capacity of about 4.400 it was mainly used for sports and music events. After Lithuania's independence it became a sort of shopping mall. In July 2006 the Palace of Concerts and Sports was added to a list of "Cultural Values".
The Palace of Concerts and Sports is situated on the right bank of the Neris River in the southernmost part of the Zirmunai district.
