CNV00009This picture was  taken near Le Meridien Villon (now Le Meridien Vilnius) hotel close to sunset.

P1000501The road runs from Vilnius, through Ukmerge (famous for the song about the plumber) heading towards Latvia.

It was part of the route of the Baltic Way when a 2 million strong, 600 km, human chain joined hands for 15 minutes to connect the three Baltic capitals of Vilnius, Riga, and Tallinn.

It was a peaceful protest on 23 August 1989 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact between the Soviet Union and Nazi German which divided Eastern Europe into spheres of influence and which led to the occupation of the Baltic states.
