Green Bridge, Vilnius

A remnant from the Soviet era can be found spanning the Neris river - the Green Bridge. Originally built in 1536, the bridge got its name from the color it was painted. The current bridge dates from 1952 and features four sets of large "social realist" sculptures.

The bridge.

The sculptures represent Soviet idealizations of perfect citizens of society. Here are students, Youth of Education.
