17 October 2010 - LT-94458 - Vilnius

This is on of the nicest cards I got in the last months. It was send from Lithuania . It has traveled a distance of 1,420 km in 11 days. It shows us the old town of Vilnius. It is the first card I got from this city, it is also on the UNESCO list. It is a panoramic view and unfortunately I could not scan the third and last part.

Political centre of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania from the 13th to the end of the 18th century, Vilnius has had a profound influence on the cultural and architectural development of much of eastern Europe. Despite invasions and partial destruction, it has preserved an impressive complex of Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and classical buildings as well as its medieval layout and natural setting.
