20190626_162554 Šnipiškės: a triangular brick house
A triangular brick house in the unique Vilnius neighborhood Šnipiškės, where windows still on the first floor, but have been bricked over on the second floor.
Šnipiškės is a neighborhood smack dab in the middle of the city, surrounded by newfangled glass towers of modern day and factories of the Soviet era, but the time in Šnipiškės seems to have stopped in 19th century. Many houses here don't have running water. Even so, the old houses are disappearing, replaced by modern development; the area is full of construction zones. I walked around and took some pictures, knowing that I might not see these relics of the past when I come back to Lithuania again.
