Not Interesting Snipiskes


When somebody is taking photos of Snipiskes, it is usually Downtown or at least Šanxai. But what else I can take picture of when it is snowing in April and I can't leave the office? :)

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? :)
