Vilnius – intersection of the cultures

“Vilnius was oddity, city of blended, intersected regions, reminiscent of Trieste or Chernovtsy,” – wrote the Polish poet Czeslaw Milosz about Vilnius, where he spent youth between the two World wars. Vilnius is known as a multicultural city over time: Lithuanians, the Poles, Russians, Jewry, Belorussians and other nations live friendly among each other. According to one of the world best known Vilnius residents Antanas Venclova even today the city remains as an oddity, though his fate changed radically. Vilnius resemble palimpsest – an ancient manuscript, where through the text is emerging one or even few traces of the previous texts.
