The hotel gave me a room on the first floor in the older part of the building (room 105), which was okay, but pretty basic. This room didnt have a computer, but there was WiFi for an additional 6EUR per day or so. The hotel is not bang in the centre, but short walk down the hill, say 10 minutes or so (and 15 back).

... Czarist repression. It followed after an unsucessful uprising. Since then people have been adding crosses to the collection. All the crosses were removed (bulldozed) by the soviets in 1961, 1973 and again in 1975 however Lithuanians repeatedly replaced the crosses as a demonstration of 'hope and resistance' until and after they regained their independance. There are literally thousands of crosses all over two hills and we see people ...
... a good time with someone who nips every conversation in the bud and tells you that nothing in his town is actually worth seeing. Not that he had actually ever made the effort to explore any of it for himself.
Still we did manage to see the old castle on the hill, the 17.000 churches, the hipster neighbourhood Užupis, some linen shops, and we ate cepelinai (a huge potato gnocchi stuffed with meat) and bright green pea soup. And we decided that Vilnius is definitely worth ...
... saying goodbye to our little car. Vilnius, capital of Lithuania, is much quieter than Tallinn and Riga but still has a lot of history. Vilnius used to be called the Jerusalem of the north due to the large Jewish population and there were 100 synagogues and prayer houses in the city, but now there is one synagogue left and very few Jews. We spent a couple of hours in the old KGB building which is now a museum that ...
... no doubt we'll be back. Following a good feed we then decide to leave the country and head to another...The Republic of Užupis. This is a district of Vilnius that is home to artists who decided they wanted to create their own flag, constitution, leader and army (believed to be made up of approximately 5 people). Finally, a nation that Ireland can go to war with and win (maybe). We wanted our passports stamped, but apparently you can only get this done on their Independence ...
Yesterday, Thursday, May 31, was another big train day. We started out at 6:00 am this morning. Shower up, check out, run to catch the number 175 bus to the Warsaw central train station, find our train, buy some food at a snack shop, jump on the train. It took us around 12 total hours by the time we got to Vilnius.
The trains weren't too bad today. Only three of them. The first and longest leg of the trip, in another first-class cube for six, ...
