Trip to Lithuania

16 Aug

I would like to share my impressions of a trip to Lithuania, located on the cost of Baltic sea. Although Lithuania is right next to my fatherland, I have never visited it’s capital before. Weird, right?

As my fiancé was on vacation, we decided to spend a nice time together and go on a road trip somewhere close. Why not Lithuania? Our main goal was to explore the capital city Vilnius. As the weather was great, and since we knew that Lithuanian beaches are very nice there we decided to spend some time on a beach as well.

Sometimes you don’t need to go very far to find a beautiful place. It could be just around the corner (or in our case just around the closest border). It is about spending a good time together with person or people you love and discovering new interesting places.

These are the things we saw and the things we did:

On the way we stopped by at The Hill of Crosses

Ate a good meal at “Meat Lovers Pub” – place that serves good home-made hamburgers, steaks and soups. I like it for it’s interesting, fun interior and cozy atmosphere

While sipping some Margaritas listened to the voices of restaurant owner’s singing and guitar play.

I am thankful for the wonderful weather we had, for the great opportunity to see amazing architecture of Vilnius and it’s churches, and spend this trip together with the loved one 🙂

Have a good day!
