"Real" Vilnius

by Martti2 Online Now Feb 24, 2008 at 12:52 PM

Hi again,

What parts of Vilnius should one see to make the acquaintance of the
areas which are populated by ordinary and low income people? Is there
a district that is particularly poor?
Do not get me wrong I will of course see the churches, museums and other
fancy stuff also but that is not all of Vilnius I guess.

    Dead easy. Find a Green bridge ("Zaliasis tiltas"), it is here:
    , and walk north down the street of Kalvariju. Walk or go 1 or 2 stops by trolleybus (exept No 12 and 13), then turn left. It's a shanty town, now turning into something civilized. Walk thru the new buildings and soon you'll see a normal and real Vilnius ;). You won't be lost as those new "skyscrapers" are visible anywhere. And if you walk on westwards, finally you'll come to the one of the main streets anyway.
