Nice pics. There are quite much new development( some new buildings look cheap though), but also something should be done with abandoned houses.
Actually most of new development here is in places where old abandoned houses once was, so sooner or later they will be gone ;)

Many citizens of Vilnius love Antakalnis. I personally hate this district. It always was such a dull and gloomy place to me. And those photos taken in such weather and time of year perfectly illustrate this...

Thank you, Geex! :) As always, your photos are first rate, and I love the way you capture so many decorative details. :eek:kay:

Alas along with the new and newly refurbished buildings, you also show us some dilapidated, abandoned houses. :( I'm sure they, too, were once handsome dwellings and an asset to their neighborhood, byt they now have fallen into sad times.

I hope there will not only be demolition of these old buildings to make room for new ones, but that at least some of them will be restored. :)


P.S. Thanks also to Edd! :) Lovely baroque architecture there. :cool:
