Green Bridge (Vilnius)

The Žaliasis Tiltas, or “Green Bridge” is the oldest bridge in Vilnius. This bridge is one of the interesting places to see in Vilnius. It's hard to overlook the four massive Soviet sculptures at its corners. Green Bridge is the only bridge in Vilnius boasting sculptures of any kind.

These sculptures is the examples of social-realism the only communist monuments left in the city-center. There were a lot of discussions to take off these sculptures but they still are on and they are very interesting to people who did not lived in soviet regime. The four communist couples cornering the bridge represent agriculture,industry, peace and youth.
