Town Near Vilnius

by zuriga

I wonder if a local to Vilnius has ever heard of a small town nearby which is called Shmagan - or something close to that. It's hard to translate it into English letters!

Re: Town Near Vilnius

And how it would be without a translation into English letters? There is no any LT word ending by letter "-n", there is no any Šmagan nor Šmeigan, maybe it is Jewish version and the only name which comes to my mind is Smurgainys (Lith)/ Smarhon'(Belarussian), east of Vilnius/Vilna, but now beyond the border.

Thanks. Yes, maybe it was a Jewish shetl - that's very possible. Or perhaps it's the town you mentioned. It was all many years ago. I think maybe Jews of Vilna, thought of themselves as Russian or Polish.

Travel Tips for Vilnius

The mysterious statue

by evaanna

I came across the photograph of this statue among my friend's pictures and found it intriguing. Who might it represent? A monk? A saint? And why is it situated on the ground and not on a pedestal? I thought it looked very effective as it is with the man emerging from the wall (gate?) as if marching ahead. Is it a church decoration temporarily placed there for restoration or is this its permanent position? My friend couldn't answer any of my questions and didn't even remember where she had taken the picture. I hope someone will help me solve the puzzle. After all, there are no things VT-ers cannot explain.

Vilnius Tip

by mayflower

On the day of my arriving to Vilnius there was a race of self-made boats held on the river. People made boats from all kinds of things, like plastic bottles, car tires, balloons, boxes and so on. They all were very funny and we had a lot of fun watching the race. If only I had taken some pictures of that!

Doens't it look Soviet-style? ;-)

by Carletto76

Thanks again to my Lithuanian friend Raimix now we know what there's written on this sign: "who will create the future of Lithuania tomorow?! Be political active".
So it's not a political party sign, but it's an invitation to Lithuanian people to partecipate more in active politics. It seems that few Lithuanians are interested in politics, and few people go to vote, which is not good in a Democracy, so dear Lithuanian friends, go to vote at elections! ;-)
Of course it's not a Soviet sign, but it remembered me of old propaganda signs of the USSR...

When you get to Vilnius, pick...

by kenbac

When you get to Vilnius, pick up a copy of “Vilnius in your Pocket”. This is one of the “In Your Pocket” guides, which are currently covering a very large area of Eastern Europe. This is a guide you cannot be without. The cost is 4 Lt (£ Ir 0.90). You can read the entire guide, in advance of your trip at
www.inyourpocket.com
but still purchase it when you arrive, as you do really need to have it “In Your Pocket”
Great to plan your next activity, while you have a coffee or beer.
You can get it at the Airport, and if you like can also get the full range of “In your Pocket Guides” there also. If you are doing the 3 Baltic States, it’s handy to have them and they make good reading on your journey to your next destination.

King's monument and... wine

by matcrazy1

Mindaugas was the name of the first and the only king of Lithuania who conversioned Lithuania to Christianity, not at all succesfully at the beginning.

Nowadays, Mindaugas was called the first Lithuanian European by president of Lithuania. Lithuania and Vilnius celebrated 750 anniversary of his coronation in 2003. The Mindaugas monument (on my picture) was opened that time.

Now, a lot of things are named after Mindaguas in Vilnius. For example you can buy Mindaugas... sparkling wine in each supermarket.
