Lithuania。Vilnius。City Center 立陶宛首都維爾紐斯

 Lithuania is about 1.8 times bigger than Taiwan, its neighbor including in Latvia, Belarus, Poland and Russia. To look its history, it was occupied by different countries during different period. Lithuania was independent around 1990, became a member of European Union since 2004, and started using Euro since 2015. Therefore, this country has used Euro just half year when we traveled there in summer of 2015. Before Euro, its currency was LT.

立陶宛面積大約是台灣的1.8隔壁鄰居包括拉脫維亞白俄羅斯波蘭與俄國。看它的過去歷史,也是在不同時期被不同國家佔領;沒辦法,小國總是弱勢。它1990年宣布獨立,2004年加入歐盟。但它使用歐元的時間是三小國中最短的,在2015年才開始以歐元為法定貨幣。所以我們來到立陶宛時,這國家才使用歐元大約半年左右;在此之前,它的貨幣是立特(LT)。




We flied from Bergen of Norway to Vilnius, capital city of Lithuania. We felt the apparent different in commodity price. Because Norway is one of the most expensive country of five Northern countries (we thought that both Norway and Iceland have the highest price); however, Lithuanian income levels are somewhat lower among the Baltic States. So, we felt more relax to stay here. :-P

從挪威的卑爾根直飛到立陶宛首都維爾紐斯,開始我們在三小國的旅行。這是一個很大的對比,因為挪威是公認高物價的北歐國家中,又是最貴的國家之一(挪威和冰島物價都很高);而立陶宛是三小國中最窮的國家,來到這裡感受到價格的親民,要付錢時心情也比較好。




The old town of Vilnius is one of the largest surviving medieval old town among the Nordic countries, the Baltic States, UK and Ireland.
It was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1994.


維爾紐斯的舊城區,是北歐五國、波羅地海三小國、再加上英國與愛爾蘭這些歐洲北方的國家中,現存最大的中世紀古城之一。
這個舊城區在
1994年被列為聯合國世界文化遺產。

This is Vilnius airport. We took bus to city center from here, 1 euro per person.
這是維爾紐斯機場,從這裡搭巴士去市區,一人1歐元。



We saw the transportation and street that had historic atmosphere.
途中所見之交通工具與街道都給人以一種古老的感覺~






We booked room from Airbnb, room is situated in the area of old town, this was special accommodation. When we entered, saw the staircase full of graffiti. It is said that this buildings was originally school. Visual shock firstly!

我們從Airbnb上預訂的房間就位於舊城區一帶,據說原本是間學校。一個很特別的住宿體驗,一樓大門進入後是充滿塗鴉的樓梯間,首先的視覺震撼!






Our plan in this day was walking around old town. This is an important catholic church in Lithuania – Vilnius Cathedral. It was not far from our accommodation. The Bell Tower next to the Cathedral, you can see the great view from top.

這天就是老城區巡禮放下行李後就開始到處亂逛。這是立陶宛很重要的一座天主教教堂--維爾紐斯主教座堂,離我們的住宿處不遠。教堂旁的鐘樓可以付費上去參觀,從樓頂應該可以看到不錯的景色。







Gediminas Tower is part of the Castle in Vilnius, was built around 14th - 15th century.
格迪米納斯塔曾是維爾紐斯城堡的一部分,屬於十四、十五世紀時的建築。

Lateratu Wall is also one of popular attractions. It is a sort of memorial to many famous writers and poets. Since 2008 the idea came up, over one hundred art works are installed on the wall.

這文學巷的藝術牆也是此地受歡迎的景點之一。這是為了紀念當地著名的作家與詩人。這藝術牆的計畫自從2008被提出與執行以來,目前牆上已有超過一百多個藝術作品。





St. Anne and Bernardine church are churches close to each other, they are all Gothic architecture. Among these churches, St. Anne is most famous. It is said that St. Anne was praised by Napoleon, it is also included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

聖安娜教堂聖弗朗西斯和聖伯納德教堂是緊密相連的建築,都是哥德式建築的代表。其中聖安娜教堂更為著名,據說它曾被拿破崙稱讚,也是聯合國世界文化遺產之一

Finally, we tasted the traditional Lithuanian dishes for dinner in Forto Dvaras, a popular restaurant in old town.

最後,來到有名的Forto Dvaras餐廳來嘗嘗傳統立陶宛食物這間位於老城區的餐廳還挺熱門的
