Gediminas’ Tower, Vilnius and the Baltic way

From wikipedia:
“Gediminas’ Tower is an important state and historic symbol of the city of Vilnius and of Lithuania itself. It is depicted on the national currency, the litas, and is mentioned in numerous Lithuanian patriotic poems and folk songs.”

On August 23rd 1989, exactly 25 years ago, the Baltic way, the human chain that spanned Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, had its end point just outside Gediminas’ Tower. There’s an exhibition in the Tower with pictures of that landmark event.
