Interwar buildings in Vilnius, vėrynas district.

Beware of the green dragon.




Observing vėrynas from the hills.

Cheers to that It looks like Sofia can learn few things from Vilnius - your commie blocks look in much better shape! We're only starting to renovate them now and will probably take several years till we see any results...

Well, most of these blocks on the pictures are demokratblocks, build only recently, but yes, most of the commieblocks look quite good except chaotically glazed balconies...
Renovation here is only starting also, there are more than 6000 soviet houses in Vilnius, only about a hundred of them are renovated.

Here are some commieblocks from the same roof.

Actually, I quite like them. Many green areas between the groups of the buildings in these quarters.

Renaissance St. Michael church.
This church was neglected and robbed by Cossacks in the 17th century with a lot of tombs smashed and young nuns brutally killed and later desecrated by commies bastards.
Restored a year ago. With magnificent interiors, never seen something more stunning outside of Italy!

Now very impressive, European level museum inside. http://www.bpmuziejus.lt/
E.g. hundreds of works of art like golden monstrances from XIV c. are shown there.
