    Lithuana and Poland

    September 21, 2018 in Lithuania ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Unfortunately, I hadn‘t that much time to compare Lithuania with the other Baltic countries Estonia and Latvia. But Lithuania seems like that it‘s more similar to Poland than for example Estonia and Latvia with Russia. I Visited the Hill of Crosses in Lithuania. Nobody knows how much Cruzifix are there, but it seems like there are more than 20‘000 of them!!!
    I‘m not into religion, but it‘s a fantastic location you have to visit!

    I crossed the border of Lithuania and Poland at the „Three Country Corner“ with Kaliningrad which is part of Russia. It‘s sad that we have such guarded borders in Europe. Officially it is forbidden to take pictures of Russian soil. Did it anyway and then I drove away quickly.

    In the evening I reached Poland, and the gone headquarter of Adolf Hitler „Wolfsschanze.“ It‘s on the one hand very impressively and on the other hand very depressive if you know how much pain was planned and executed from this place.

    So I have to reach Berlin on Saturday evening! See you :)
