Lithuania is home to Kryz­iu Kalnas - The Hill of the Crosses - and famous for its wood carving and high quality amber. The weather improved as we moved south and inland. The blue skys of Vilnius were a welcomed change from the overcast of Tallinn and Riga.

Vilnius is very photogenic with a nice old town surrounded by low hills. The tour guides continued to complain about the Soviet legacy and were very proud of the restoration work being done.
