Viršuliškės – one of the smallest districts in Vilnius. With this exhibition we began a new series of VM studies dedicated to the seemingly boring districts of the capital.
The exhibition itself was an exceptional one. It was the first VM exhibition not to take place in the Old Town and the first to be divided into three parts. The first part was set up inside a trolleybus that stood near the trolleybus depot on Viršilų Street and on an adjacent lot fence on Viršuliškių Alley. It presented the history of the old village of Viršuliškės and the later development of its territory. The second part told the story of how the Soviet district of Viršuliškės came to be and was located on the basement floor of a 12-storey building on 43 Viršuliškės Street. The third part is a walking route through the district itself that will guide you through the area’s most interesting locations.
