This strange, rather ugly and first of all not renovated for years building, on my picture, should house a hotel. The advertisement on its top announced: Hotel, Viesbutis (in Lithuanian), Gostinica (in Russian).
But I did find only various offices (small business) inside there. Hmm... this WAS Zibintas Hotel long time before my visit, I think.
Generally, some drinks and food should be kept in cold places, preferrably in a fridge, right? For sure beer should be frozen to say 5 C (41 F) before drinking. Hot or warm mineral water or juices don't taste good at least in hot summer time, right?
Well, in that local grocery in the outskirts of Lazdijai on my picture, only diary products were kept in a fridge, but not eggs! Don't they know salmonella poisoning?
That's why I didn't buy any beer there. Hmm... my car had no fridge :-)
To be honest Lazdijai and especially its main town square (Nepriklausomybes aikste) was more... a tourist trap than a must see. But... if you want to see how former Soviet Union towns looked like...
The square was covered by old, grey and bumpy pavings. Watch your steps!
Hmm... the Soviet Union didn't like word "flat". There were almost no flat pavements, no flat roads/streets, too few usually small flats (appartments) as well. Only casual life in former Soviet Union was often flat.
