The Lux Express bus ride equipped with wifi and restroom from Riga, Latvia to Vilnius takes four hours. Upon arrival in Vilnius, we walked 15 minutes to our spacious and bright Airbnb, with three bedrooms, and two bathrooms.
We followed our established routine, going out to a local Supermarket to stock up for the three night stay, and then hit the pavement!
Our four mile walk included a stroll through beautiful Bernardine Park.
I love capturing emotion…a mother’s love for her infant…and color!
We also briefly explored the area called Uzupis, similar to Christiana in Denmark…The self-proclaimed “Republic” of Užupis is Vilnius’ Bohemian and artistic district. It has its own anthem, constitution, president, bishop, two churches, and the Bernadine Cemetery.
This bridge with love locks fits nicely in the neighborhood…
Here is the bridge from farther away. The guy swinging was very nice and invited us down to join him!
I don’t remember what building or statue this was…very sleek.
The best way to feel like a local is to stay at an Airbnb, go the Supermarket, and walk to most sites!
