Lithuanian song and dance celebration „Dainų Šventė“

In this video you can see our national song and dance celebration „Dainų Šventė“ taking place in Vingio Parkas, Vilnius a week ago. The weather was awful, but still it was very exciting to see thousands of singers from all around Lithuania singing national songs together. My son was there singing too…

Construction of Vilnius south bypass

Pietinis aplinkkelis (Vilnius’ south bypass)
You see construction of Vilnius south bypass (Pietinis aplinkkelis) near Subačiaus street. I liked the place before constructions started more, but at least it would be useful for the old town (hopefully). You can find official information here (in Lithuanian).
