Photographer's Note

Yesterday I showed the Mickiewicz monument in Minsk, now the monument in Vilnius. In Lithuanian language they change the names in a way that is funny for me. very often they just add -as or us. Here some Lithuanian vocabulary:
Monitorius (computer monitor)
Faksas (fax)
Kompiuteris (computer)
Failas (electronic file)
Other common foreign words have also been adopted by the Lithuanian language. Some of these include:

Taksi (taxi)
Pica (pizza)
Alkoholis (alcohol)
Bankas (bank)
Pasas (passport, pass).

Behind the monument the most beautiful churches in Vilnius - St. Anne and St. Francis and St. Bernard.
St. Anna Church is a Roman Catholic church in Vilnius' Old Town, on the right bank of the Vilnia River. It is a prominent example of both Flamboyant Gothic and Brick Gothic styles. St. Anne's is a prominent landmark in the Old Town of Vilnius that enabled the district to be included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites. And it is one of the most interesting examples of Gothic architecture in Lithuania.

These are last pictures I made with my 'bigger" camera in my trip :(. Then I had to use only my small camera and mobile. What a disaster.
