    Paintings on brick bulding

    BRICK  HOUSE

    This red-brick building, on my picture, stood along a street at main town square called Nepriklausomybes aikste. It surely didn't look amazing but the paintings put on its wall and fence looked interesting.

    Generally the city looked ugly and nothing survived from the old Lazdaijai founded in 1597 or I didn't find it.

    Secret wooden public art

    WOODEN  STATUE

    There were three wooden sculptures or rather statues put on a lawn located opposite to Lazdijai parish church. This one on my picture was the highest of them.

    There were many, similar in style, statues put in many Lithuanian cities, towns and villages.

    Ugly small architecture

    SMALL,  UGLY  ARCHITECTURE

    This small, neglected and ugly building, on my picture, stood in the same centre/downtown of Lazdijai, opposite to parish church (Sv. Onos Baznycia). It was made of typical for this area small, white bricks. At first sight I thought there were old (post-Soviet) public restrooms/toilets there. But... I was wrong.

    Strange public art on a field

    PUBLIC  ART  ON  A  FIELD

    I found this strange sculpture on my picture at the entrance to Lazdijai via highway 134 from Kalvarija. The metal, neglected, a little bit rusty sculpture stood alone on a field covered by wild grass.
    I remember similar kind of public, field art from former Soviet Union (western Ukraine) which I visited a few times in 70' and 80'.

    Cemetery

    CEMETERY

    I found old cemetery with a lot of beautiful graves driving from Kalvarija, on the left side of highway 134 a few kilometers before city centre/downtown. There was small parking lot on the left at the end of the cemetery where I parked a car.

    The oldest graves I found were founded in the second half of 19th century. Graves were put up on green hills, among trees and most of them had inscriptions in... Polish language. Well, it seems that there were many Polish people (majority?) living there in the past. Just in case... Laizdaji was called Lozdzieje in Polish language.
