Lithuania was part of USSR since WW2 and became independent in 1991. Since 2004 it’s part of European Union and has euro currency circulating since 2015. But let’s look how the country capital city Vilnius was looking during Soviet Era. Starting with this Lithuanian student of Vilnius State University in 1977.

    In Switzerland today in almost all newly developed areas it looks just the very same as in the picture with the title “Another new Soviet built neighborhood in Vilnius, 1979.” The difference is, there are even less trees, greenery and much more asphalt right around the buildings. Even childrens play grounds are built just besides the streets instead of in the centres of the new living areas. Also most new buildings are calculated und built to last a few decades only… after a couple of years they (the new buildings) beginn to show dark atains from wind and weather and soon look like many decades old. it is all in all a grave time for architecture fit for healthy living…
