Hi there, I’m Raminta and I’m Jack and welcome back to Lithuanian Out Loud.
One fascinating location in Vilnius, Lithuania is the Green Bridge or Žaliasis tiltas not far from Pilies gatvė in the old town or senamiestis. There are four old Soviet statues on the bridge, two on the north end, two on the south end. Each statue has a unique theme, peace, youth, agriculture and industry. It’s a great place for a photo.
