20 Times Lithuanians Tried Decorating Old Soviet Apartment Buildings And Got Mixed Results

Published 4 years ago

Back in the days of the Soviet Union, there was an immense need for housing which resulted in numerous bleak-looking apartment buildings being built all over Eastern Bloc countries. Many of those buildings are still used to this day and their creative residents are coming up with ways of livening up the boring old stairwells and yards – often in pretty hilarious ways.

Some Lithuanians have even created a Facebook group titled Laiptinių puošimo grupė (Stairwell decoration group) where they are sharing the most creative decorations they’ve come across or created themselves. From sculptures of Goku to colorful murals of waterfalls, check out the most unique ways people decorated their old soviet buildings in the gallery below!

Vilnius resident Kristina Šeniauskienė has recently made the local news for the impressive garden she created near her apartment building. In an interview with a local TV station, the woman said she works for the compliments and has never received as many as she does not. Kristina spends 5 to 6 six hours every day tending all 60 different plants around the garden.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
