Vilnius downtown is located in Šnipiškės area. Because of all these skyscrapers gathered in one place, Vilnius looks like any other American city with downtown in the middle.
Interesting fact is that Lithuanian currency Litas was pegged to USD from 1994 to 2002, which shows some very close connection between Lithuanian and US, I just don't understand which one and why? :)
