The River Neris divides Vilnius but also provides opportunities for walkers, keep-fit enthusiasts, canoeists and on this occasion a small river boat cruising along the river from where you can see the castle on the hill or just watch life passing by.
Lithuanians are used to peaceful protests eg the Baltic Way.
I’d walked up Pilies g. until it turned into Didžioji g. and I came to the fountain at the bottom of the Town Hall Square (Rotušės aikštė). Then I decided to go to the left for a change onto Savičiaus g.
I realised that this was where the famous composer and painter Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis (1875-1911) had lived and where his house is now a museum. I didn’t want to do a museum just then and I’d spotted a church tower.
When I got there I realised it was derelict although workmen were repairing the roof on the building next door. There are many churches in Vilnius but I wondered why this one had fallen into disuse. I couldn’t see the name of the church on the building or on my map.
I took a couple of photographs but it was when I was on that street again in the evening heading for the bastion that I took this picture.
The building seems to glow in the evening Summer sunlight.
