It is a bridge. It works. It fulfills it function. We drove on it 2 times. Well' could be called an attraction, if you are bridge engineer or bridge enthusiast.

Driving over the bridge to the airport was not that invigorating nor did we see much of the bridge but on checking it had history. The original wooden bridge over the Neris River dated back to 1536 and it had various versions and the first steel bridge came along in 1894 which survive the first world war but was blow up by the Germans in 1944.The current bridge was built in 1952 and a nice bridge over the Neris it is.

Stayed at the Congress hotel near to the green bridge. It offers nice views of old town. Looks rather plane since the removal of the soviet realism statues. The current bridge was made in 1952. Worth stopping if close by.

This bridge has had rough times. It has been blown up, demolished and rebuilt again and again. In each corner, there was a Soviet statue representing old-school socialism. They were demolished in 2015 because they represented the city's Soviet heritage.

Historically, this is one of the oldest bridges in Vilnius, known since the medieval times. Present appearance, however, it acquired in 1952, it was designed in Leningrad (St. Petersburg now) and was built by Russian army engineers, so it has all features of heavy and rather tasteless features of architecture of Stalin era. Only the name and colour (hence the name Zaliasis - green) are retained from olden times - it was such since the second half of 18th century. From 1950ies till 2015 four groups of sculptures adorned the bridge. The sculptures made in a rather awful style of so called Socialist Realism symbolized different layers of communist society. The sculptures were rather bizarre and after some discussion they were removed, placing featureless vases with decorative plants instead. In 2010 another bizarre piece was added to the bridge - a sculpture in the form of piece of huge chain. But the crown of the bizarre is not on the bridge itself. When standing on the bridge and facing Gediminas tower, one will always notice a rusty pipe going down into the river. Visitors usually wonder whether this is some relic from Soviet times or whether ecological situation in Vilnius is so bad that sewage is transported directly into river. Neither! It is an example of modern art proudly named “Ark of Enbankment” (known, however, as “The Pipe” among Lithuanian public). It is a huge source of annoyance for most of Vilnius citizens and amusement for the rest of Lithuanians. So – make a small detour and go look at and stand on the most bizarre bridge in Vilnius. Maybe even in Lithuania.
