A Walk By the River Neris, the Vein of Vilnius (Part 1)

A Walk By the River Neris, the Vein of Vilnius (Part 1), Vilnius, Lithuania (B)

If you find yourself in Vilnius, with some time to spare, a great way to relax without leaving the city is going for a long walk by the river Neris, the bigger of the two rivers in the city.

It’s a really easy way to escape the city without leaving it and a great way to relax at any time of the year.

For the proposed walks, you can either walk on the sidewalks of the streets flanking the river Neris or go down to the water and use the well-developed sidewalks right by the water. It's the best way to escape the traffic and mute the noise of the city.

The first suggested walk is eastward, from Žaliasis Tiltas (Žaliasis Bridge) to Žirmunų Tiltas (Žirmunų Bridge).

If you visit in spring, summer or early autumn, the first thing you’ll notice as you stand on Žaliasis Bridge and look at the river Neris eastwards, are some words made out of flowers on two banks of the river.

Another interesting thing you'll notice from the Žaliasis Tiltas is a strange pipe-like arch on one of the banks. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
