Vilnius Local Customs: 135 reviews and 161 photos
Referring to official dates there was 18.7 % Polish minority and 14.0 % Russian minority in Vilnius in 2001. Polish minority as I noticed had a few Polish institutions like Polish Institute and library, Association of Poles in Lithuania, Polish newspaper "Nasza gazeta" (Our newspaper), Polish radio "Znad Wilii".
Well, I don't know about Russians but I can say that I noticed some small, very small signs of Polish and Lithuanian nationalism in Vilnius. Nothing strange after long time of isolation of the two neighbours under Soviet regime and difficult shared history.
More in my travelogues :-)
