City Games

A few days after my arrival in Vilnius, I found out that ESN was organizing some events in the first week while we were there. One of those activities were the City Games.

City Games- the best way to get acquainted with a new city in which you are going to stay for the next 6 months. 

It was so much fun taking part in these games because we got to work with random people ( we still didn't know one another ) and discover Vilnius together, therefore we ended up friends after all.


One of the first things we had to do was find the Lucky Belly. It is said that if you rub the belly, it would bring luck to you and some several students told us that usually, before they started an exam session, they would go and rub that belly as much as possible. Some say it worked, some that it didn't, but it was worth a try.


Another task we had was to find the Constitution of Uzupis, an indepedent part that is located in Vilnius. It was very interesting because that Constitution was translated in more than 10 languages from Russian to English, Romanian to Arabic. It was pretty impressive. As my minor was Russian I have decided that it would be pretty interesting to take a photo of this one. Some of them are really funny. For exampe:

3. One has the right to die, but it is not obligatory.

4. One has the right to be wrong.

13. A cat is not obliged to love its master but during hard times to come to his  help.


Wandering around the city was very intersting and not only did we find what we were supposed to, but we also ran into some other interesting places like Saint Anne's Church. The architecture of this buliding was pretty impressive and one would be amazed when seeing it for the first time.


One final task that we had was to take a photo of a kiosk. A kiosk is like a small shop that you can find in the middle of a road, a sidewalk etc where you can buy not so many things, but in Vilnius you could also buy and recharge the card for public transport


Finally, after a long trip, what would be better than a coffe and something sweet to eat. Well, in Vilnius there are 2 main cafés: Caffeine LT and Vero Cafe. And it seems that they are in a big competition because wherever there is a Caffeine, on the opposite side of the street you can see a Vero Cafe.

They both have good products and similar prices, it mostly depends where you can find a seat more than what you choose. I was to find this later on, but at that moment we saw a Vero Cafe and were too happy to have a place to sit and enjoy some warm coffee.
