There is nothing exceptional about this bridge or it's history that couldn't be said about almost every pre-war bridge in Europe, it was built, the Nazi's blew it up during the war, it was re-built, not much more to say about it really.

If it happens that you take a walk along the river you will see the bridge but even if your far away you can still see it....

The unusual thing about it is the soviet decorations. Those are at present still being purged in Lithuania, so it might be worth your while to have a look at them while they are still there.
