Unfortunately I stayed there only for a few hours, I had to return to my hotel in Suwałki.

About the roads, I really enjoyed A5 and A1, but others were in a rather poor condition. Apart from that I got lost and almost went to Klaipėda via A1, but eventually I made my way onto A5 thanks to huge Varšuva/Warszawa signs.

And no, I wasn't watching any football match.

Cool pics, PLH! Though, I can't really agree with your said about the poor roads in Lithuania as this country spends a lot of money in road maintenance. Hardly anywhere would you find a bumpy road that is quite popular as a route in LT..!

Yeah, I was reffering to city streets. National roads are in good condition.

The situation in Lithuania is exactly the same as in Poland, where roads managed by the state are way better than those by relatively poor(compared to their huge needs for maintenance) cities.

It's probably so. Their roads are in much better condition that streets (same as in Latvia). I remember Panevežys... After their nice roads I felt like in battlefield - holes everywhere.

As you wish

Ogrodniki/Lazdijai - Vilnius

Various roads


Because the windshield of the bus was very dirty as well as some stretches were somewhat bumpy I present only some part of this route:

Short section right after the border (pics soon) with hard shoulder:

We are approaching Vilnius, which can be asily seen by the road surface

All taxis are black, some of them ever matt. It was trendy and jazzy two years ago, but now it is passé, don't they know it ?
