St John’s Church Bell Tower at Vilinus

Travelling in the Baltic, one sees that many churches have separate bell towers.

Some of the towers are quite tall too.DSC_0383

The St John’s bell tower at Vilinus was built in the 16th century.

I am sure in those days, these were one of the tallest structure in the area.

This is beautiful architecture and engineering challenge at the time.

The Streets and Alleys of Baltic (29)

I will be doing a series on streets and alleys of the Baltic countries.

I have been to all the Baltic capitals which includes visiting of some of the UNESCO Heritage sites like Vilnius, Riga, Tallinn etc.

What I found most interesting are the alleys and the streets which all have their own characteristics.DSC_0168

I am not able to tell you exactly where those alleys and streets are; in my simple mind, they are my memorable parts of the Baltic.

I like the cobblestones, the quaint street, the colored walls on both sides of the alleys, the cafes along or encroached onto the roads, the crude masonry wall facing and last, but not the least, the friendly people.

They leave an undeletable part in my memory!
