It was actually a very good idea to make a street an "outdoor art gallery" if we can call it that. Small pieces of artwork is plastered to the walls along the literati street. It takes relatively short time to walk by, but such a thing surely attract potential customers to the hidden cafes and entrepreneurs established in the area.... More

This little street is good for a leisurely stroll while looking at all of the various little bits of artwork on the walls of the houses. Whimsical and cute.

This street is a nice walk mostly because its narrowness and difference from the other old town street. Maybe some explanations would have been appropriate to fully understand the artwork here.

This was my favorite place in Vilnius. Why? Because its charm does not consist in antiquity, gold or religion: it is sheer imagination. A tribute to creativity.

Super poetic and interesting, not only for art lovers. It just livens your day up. "Street" or rather "wall" art dedicated to writers, translators and others connected to Lithuanian and world literature. It's almost like a street gallery..

You need a guide to eplain the meaning of the different artworks to make it understandable. There are funny stories behind them.

Writers, mostly Lithuanian, commemorated by artwork set into the walls of a street. Worth a walkthrough while visting Old City

It started in 2009 as a temporary exhibition. It has now been a permanent fixture. In order to get a plaquette on the wall, you have to be a writer or poet with a strong cultural connection to Lithuania. Why this street? Because it used to have a lot of bookstores and antique shops. They are long gone. The artworks... More

A small street with walls covered with tributes to writers who have had any influence (positive or negative) on Lithuanian literature.
