Vilnius and Venice
are my favourite
I hope you find interest in my 'travel reports' from around Europe, which I now present in VilNews
. The letters and photos are based on my 40 years of travelling around in 'My Europe', always with camera and notepad ready…
As an architect, it is natural for me to focus on architecture as a backdrop for my letters, but for some places architecture is the very main thing, as is the case for my two favourite cities, Vilnius and Venice...
You can read more about Venice in my travel report at
and about my dear Vilnius at

Comments from our:
I am simply surprised you have left out Kaunas -- the architecture there surpasses all.
The architecture of Kaunas is much, much younger than the one in Vilnius, Vijole. Nevertheless, someone should write about the interwar architecture in Kaunas. Lithuanian functionalism as seen only in the Laisves Avenue ...
True, Aage. I just had to put in a word for my beloved city. I always believed architecture reflected how people live day in and day out, how their thinking patterns are affected, how the people worship (or don't) God. Well -- it is a discussion on its own.
Well said, Vijole Arbas
Aage, I do indded like your travel posts. I look forward to the day when we can meet again and discuss travel and architecture.
