“Great view!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

Take a camera and walk from the old town to Aleksotas funicular via Aleksotas Bridge. You may even go fishing there :)

Road might be in a bad condition but you'll get there even with a push chair.

“BUILT IN 1948”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

The current bridge dates from 1948 as it can be witnessed by the rare examplies of hammers and sickles placed on it, although much of its Soviet charm was removed after 2005.

“Soviet Style Bridge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2012

This bridge is an example of the drab depressing Soviet architecture. It was reconstructed in 2005 and much of the Soviet charm has been removed. It looks better at night than during the day. I would suggest seeing it on a lovely warm summer evening.
