Now back to personal photos.


After twenty years of hard work, recently restored Gothic frescoes and interiors of soviet neglected Gothic-Renaissance-Baroque Bernardines church in Vilnius.

Inside. Latin tombstone.


There are tens of Rennaisance and Baroque tombs with epitaphs!

Fantastic old, recently discovered and renewed frescoes. Some of them are more than 500 years old.

Užupis.
Neglected timber beauty.



This one is under the state protection and program of wooden Vilnius, but because of shortage of money looks what it looks.
More than 5000 wooden buildings in Vilnius, more than 2000 in the Central part, ~200 are under state protection. Most of wooden buildings are in a very bad condition in Vilnius

And Secession style castle in the same neighborhood.

Vilnius. City hall square during Bartholomew's fair days-one of many fairs, taking place here. First Bartholomew's fair was held here in 1495, what means- 517 years ago.

Video. http://tv.delfi.lt/video/7nApjsxB/

My photos of the event.
