Man patinka Lietuva

I like Lithuania – a visitor's point of view

And did those feet …. 25 years ago

Look down and you will see this pair of footprints. They weren’t there last year so I asked the helpful staff from the National Museum who look after the bell-tower visitors what they represented.

They were put there to mark the 25th anniversary of the Baltic Way, the 2 million strong human chain which stretched from Vilnius to Tallinn on August 23rd 1989.

Lithuania has come a long way in those 25 years and it started here.

I’ve blogged about the Baltic way before and my colleague has also done a piece about this too here.

And without giving too much away it’s not too far from the Stebuklas MiracleTile

  1. I always enjoy what you post

  2. Hello, nice site here 🙂 I have lived in Vilnius for months but never noticed this memorial. By the belfry I only know the “lucky” one on which we should turn.

    Otherwise, I saw the exact same in Riga near the McDonald. I keep searching in Tallinn but I think that it doesn’t have any.
    It is here :

    • Hi and thanks for your comments and the update re the memorial in Riga. I’ve visited Estonia a couple of times (via Ferry from Helsinki) but not yet made it to Latvia. It’s on my list though!

      Thanks again
