Urban Snaps: Literatu street in Vilnius

Vilnius is a unique capital full of contrasts. It is artistic, creative and elegant at the same time. Creativity is everywhere, even on a small, and seemingly uneventful street of Literatu (Literatų gatvė).

The street and its walls are dedicated to writers, translators and other people who contributed to Lithuanian and world literature. Inspired by Aidas Marcenas’ poem Literatu Gatve about melancholic young men drinking and smoking on Literatu street. In Vilnius, Literatu street presents a permanent outdoor gallery dedicated to writers, who left their mark on the city. The gallery comprises of small prints, drawings and paintings celebrating writers and poets.
