Vilnius Local Customs: 135 reviews and 161 photos

I could see a lot of young and smiling locals on main, touristy streets of Vilnius. What a difference with somewhat sad, older generation. I just started to think that in fast changing (emerging) countries the lifestyle of older and younger folks must differ more than in countries of slower progress. Well, I could observe it in the countryside of Greece in late 80' (I worked there), now I can see it in Eastern Europe countries.

Well, as I got to know a couple of young Vilnians I can say that
they had hard life and a lot of casual life problems but they had hope for better future and surely a lot of energy to change their life for better as well esp. after hard and grey life of their parents under Soviet regime. Doesn't the hope make people happier?

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
