CUP Area

A word CUP isn't related to any sport at all, but it stands for Centrinė Universalinė Parduotuvė (Central Department Store).
This shopping mall and Hotel Radisson Blu Lietuva (tall building on the right side) were built in 1970s as the beginning of Vilnius city expansion to the Neris river right coast.
Thanks to Justas for providing this great photo :)

Vingio parko tiltas

Vingio parko tiltas is a pedestrian (formerly narrow-gauge railway) bridge over Neris river in Vingio park, which was opened in 1985.
Interesting fact that this bridge is a small copy of Riga Vansu Tilts and it was planned, designed and built by the same people from Leningrad.
