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 :)

Air Balloon Trips


Air balloon trips are very popular in Vilnius. Trips are the best during sunrises and sunsets, when wind directions are different on different altitudes. Single hour trip costs ~100 EUR.

Unfortunately there is no beach in Vilnius, but it doesn't stop the Volleyball addicted people to play it on an artificially made sand beach next to Neris River.

Downtown


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? :)
