Ignoto gatve in Vilnius

Ignoto gatve

Senamiestis (the old city of Vilnius) is an amazing labyrinth of narrow, moody streets. One of them is Ignoto gatve (Šv. Ignoto). Apparently named after the church of St Ignatius, which can be seen on the right part of the photo below.

After a lovely dinner and lots of beer 😉 me and my girlfriend decided to walk in the old city before returning to our apartment. It was late evening and the sun had already vanished behind the buildings but the last rays and the afterglow created an amazingly colourful polyphony on the clouds while the shadows started crawling around us.

The tiny street was quite busy. People were walking on the side walks, a couple of cars managed to break the silence while a man on his bicycle was moving slowly to the opposite direction from us. Busy moments yet surrounded by a comforting laziness.
