Pilies Street

Pilies Street is the main street in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, a small country in Europe.

It is the most frequently visited market place of folk artists in Vilnius, surely having an advantage over the Town Hall Square in this respect, since it is full with people and sellers everyday, irrespective whether any event is held here or not. Before going abroad to visit some friends or looking for a Christmas gift, everybody would run into this street. If there is some festival in the city, it will be the right thing to go to Pilies Street – most of processions always make their way through this place. Whatever the festival – be it Christmas, Easter, Kaziukas or St. Francis[?] fair, the day of Restoration of Independence, or just a city’s event, anyone can go to Pilies Street without even asking if anything will be held there.
