20190626_164450 An old house in Šnipiškės
An old house in Šnipiškės that might have been built around the end of 19th or beginning of 20th century when this neighborhood has first been built.
Šnipiškės is a neighborhood smack dab in the middle of Vilnius, surrounded by modern-day office towers as well as 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 I might not see these relics of the past when I come back to Lithuania again.
