The municipality of Vilnius finally announced where the first ever demonstration for the rights of homosexuals (and others) will take place. This is not the exact route, but it connects the starting and the finishing point of the march, and shows you which part of the city is reserved for demonstrations from now on... The Swedish Minister for EU affairs announced she will attend. Will you?

Second news: after three years, a luxury shopping mall on Gedimino ave. 9, right next to the Government building and a block away from the Cathedral, is facing uncertain destiny. The company which owns it is bankrupt, and the business is now transferred to the chief creditor - a Scandinavian-owned bank. The mall is not closed [yet], but the fact shows how deep the crisis is. Even comparatively rich inhabitants of Vilnius are saving.
