A Walk By the River Neris in Vilnius

A Walk By the River Neris in Vilnius, Vilnius, Lithuania (B)

Today, let’s see what a walk along the river Neris can offer if you walk westwards from the same starting point of Žaliasis Bridge.

The first thing you’ll notice immediately is a late Baroque church on the right bank of the river. You are looking at St Raphael the Archangel Catholic church and monastery built in the 18thcentury.

Today this church is not on most visitors’ list as it is a bit away from the main city attractions, and in our walk today, this is the only ‘old’ religious monument you’ll see mentioned. I personally like how the church dominates the view as you look towards the river from the opposite side. And those two late Baroque style steeples look particularly elegant against the backdrop of autumn colours.

Following along Upės street (or down by the water on the river walk) just before you reach the next bridge Baltasis Tiltas, you’ll notice a few things.

First, there’s a barge point where you can hire a boat and go for a fun-filled tour on the river. There are all sorts of boats available for rent, whether you want to have a full-blown on-water party or just the usual sightseeing experience.  ......
