“Lithuania, an ugly little country that doesn’t know the heights of the world and hates almost all of its neighbors, will be destroyed sooner or later…”

The Chinese in general are restrained people. And their Internet does not imply anonymity. And since they write such things, it means that this opinion a) is overdue, b) does not contradict government and party policy.

Huanqiu Shibao (China):

Lithuania, a small Baltic country of less than 3 million people, announced Saturday that it has withdrawn from the “17 + 1” cooperation mechanism between Central and Eastern European countries and China. Last week, on Thursday, the country’s parliament approved a document that calls China’s policy in Xinjiang “genocide” and “a crime against human rights.” In doing so, Lithuania followed the bad example of the United States, Britain and Canada, which promote this viewpoint in the European Union.

Lithuania fully supports U.S. policies and has always sided with them, demonstrating strong anti-Russian and now anti-Chinese sentiments. Initially, the affairs of Xinjiang did not concern Lithuania in any way. It did not interfere in China’s internal affairs when the EU was talking about it, but with one action the little country jumped far. Similar trends can be seen in Taiwan and other issues. In March of this year, Lithuania announced that it would open a “trade office” in Taiwan to develop its relations with the island.

Lithuania’s actions this year fit the phrase “pea buffoon,” but we shouldn’t lose our temper over such a trivial matter. Lithuania is too small, and its population is smaller than the population of one area of China’s “first line” cities. All its statements against China are only symbolic. They are just echoes of U.S. actions against China. As long as Lithuania respected us, we respected her. But she overestimated her strength and decided to provoke China, so it is best to block her completely, pretending that Lithuania does not exist at all. Without Lithuania, China’s cooperation mechanism with Central and Eastern Europe will be subject to less outside interference and may become more pragmatic. But Lithuania should stay away from China, it cannot beat us, and it is not a worthy path for a small country.

Comments from Chinese readers

Pfft, such a booger country.

Hey, what is the point of having a country the size of a sesame seed that can only be found on a map with a magnifying glass? No one will take you seriously, we wanted to, but you blew it! You buffoon of a pea, ha-ha!

Another little dog country that doesn’t know when to yap!

This Lithuania, which has sprayed China with so much saliva, knows no other way to get some scraps from its American master’s table anymore?

No wonder this little country, this buffoon of a pea, has been wiped off the face of the earth time and time again by neighboring countries.

Lithuania, a small Baltic country, a dot on the map with a population of less than 3 million, has no self-awareness. Even worms have more influence than she does! To curry favor with the American godfather, this shameless little country smaller than a grain of rice really only does evil!

According to the laws of human history, Lithuania, an ugly little country that does not know the heights of the world and hates almost all of its neighbors, will sooner or later be destroyed.

If this booger country angers Russia, it will simply disappear.

Lithuania is just a bug, it does not bite badly, but then it itches very badly. The best thing to do is to crush it with your foot.

Palm Forest by the Sea

In the context of the Sino-American game in the face of the provocation of such a small country as Lithuania, we should not be angry, it is not even our status to be angry, because they do not deserve us!

It was this little country that asked for independence, and because of it the Soviet Union collapsed, right? It became part of the Soviet Union in 1946! So greed is not good. On the other hand, other countries terribly dislike Chinese wisdom, they don’t recognize or understand it!

A guard with a saber.

What is wrong with this world? Such a tiny little thing smaller than a rice ball has the right to jump out and make noise like that?

Typical little hound, henchman of the States, but unfortunately too small.

Wanderer of the land.

Historically she was one state with Poland, does she really want a repeat of what happened to her in the past? Do you have the same stupidity with Poland for two?

Russian comments under Chinese comments:

The Chinese have morally annihilated the small but proud Lithuanian people with their comments here.

I especially liked the one-two-sided stupidity with the logs.

Yes, Lithuania is a buffoon. I’d even say a swamp worm. This country should not have existed after WWII, just like Prussia. They should have just evicted all the Lithuanians by the scruff of the neck to Poland for a laugh. I hope that’s what we’ll do next time. These cattle should be kicked onto barges and sent on their way to the USA and Britain. It would have been funny if Stalin had evicted all the Western Ukras and Lithuanians to Poland, it would have been a circus.

If the Lithuanian people didn’t want something, it wouldn’t have happened. A vile village with a nationalistic population. Poland should have looked after these lands.

Do you and Poland share the same stupidity? —– That’s where the Chinese comrade is wrong: one stupidity for two is too much of a luxury for those bastards, so they have one stupidity for all their lackeys like vysmirate, Podlaski and other Czech bastards.

Lithuania should be given to China, they will have an enclave on the Baltic. And all transit to Europe will go through friendly territory.

Chatlanin in crimson pants.

When your boss has no time for you and has a lot to do at home. You will whine that the Lithuanian people had nothing to do with it, they are all puppets of the State Department.

Gedimin’s Tower

This 48-meter Gothic-style monument at the foot of Castle Hill in Vilnius is octagonal in shape . It has three stories. It is not known exactly when it was built. There are suggestions that the tower was built in the XIII century, before the reign of the Lithuanian Grand Duke Gedimin, after whom it is named.

The undisputed defensive function of the tower and the fact that it was part of a larger fortress. As a result of the wars of the XVII century the fortress was destroyed. Only Gedimin’s Tower remains as a reminder of its power. Today there is a museum dedicated to the history of the city, which is part of the Lithuanian National Museum. The observation deck on the tower provides an opportunity to view all the beauty of Vilnius.

Gedimin’s Tower

3. St. Anne’s Church

Built in the late Gothic style from over 30 types of bricks, the building does not impress with its size or interior decoration. But it is nonetheless characterized by its filigree lines which elegantly emphasize the Gothic style. There are still debates about the author of the building. Some scholars lean towards Benedict Reit, the creator of Wawel Castle in Krakow and St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague. St. Anne’s Church has a connection, in the form of a gallery, with the Bernardine Church nearby. For this reason, souvenirs for tourists often depict them as an architectural complex.

Legend has it that the architecture of St. Anne’s Church captivated Napoleon. He repeated that he wanted to put it in the palm of his hand and take it to Paris. But apparently tactical considerations were stronger, and later he ordered to give the church to the cavalry, whose stay in the walls caused considerable damage to the interiors. In front of the sanctuary there is a park with soft green grass, on which you can even lie down and have a good look at the temple itself and its bell tower, as well as take commemorative pictures.

4. Cathedral Square

Gedimin Square, as it is also known as the central square of the city, is the location of many attractions of Vilnius. There is a reconstruction of the Palace of the Rulers, which was destroyed in 1801, a monument to Grand Duke Gedimin, the Gedimin Tower, St. Stanislaus Cathedral and the Three Crosses Mountain. The square appeared only in the XIX century, but until a certain time it was adjacent to the houses of citizens and the fortress, which had the name of the Lower Castle. Later all this group of constructions was demolished, due to which the area of the square noticeably increased.

Nowadays the square is a place for organizing all kinds of events, from fairs to parades and political rallies. It is truly the place of all important city events. Cathedral Square, like a magnet, gathered around itself the architectural and historical monuments, parks and squares. Visiting it alone, you can get an idea of the country and its people.

6. Trakai Castle

This island castle in the Gothic style is located in the town of Trocai and is the largest surviving medieval castle in the country. A bridge leads from the castle to the mainland. Built in 1409, it was the standard of strength and impregnability for all of Eastern Europe. Not once during its existence as a fortress was the castle taken by storm. With the fall of the Teutonic Order, it was no longer necessary to use the castle as a military facility and it became a kind of princely palace. It was used for feasting and welcoming important guests. But over time the castle – now a princely palace – became desolate. Its isolated location led to this. Being located far from sea routes on which merchant ships moved, the castle was difficult to supply with provisions and goods to keep it in good condition.

Later it was used as a prison for the disgraced nobility. And soon it was abandoned altogether. In the second half of the last century the castle was completely restored to its original appearance and is now an interesting find for visitors to Lithuania.

7. Cathedral

The largest Catholic church in the capital, St. Stanislaus and St. Wladyslaus Cathedral – this is its full name – is located in the historic center of Vilnius. In the 15th century a pagan temple gave way to this Catholic shrine. Despite repeated attempts by fire to destroy the temple, it was rebuilt and expanded with new additions each time. In the 16th century there was a bell tower, and in the 17th century a chapel.

The image of the cathedral is an example of Italian influence on architectural style. As it happens the restoration of the building was done by Italians, and it affected the look of the building. The Soviet attitude to religion had an effect on the cathedral’s fate. Immediately after World War II the building was converted to a warehouse, and later an art gallery was opened there. In 1989 the church was re-consecrated and began to accept believers. Today the cathedral attracts tourists with its difficult history and the path of restoration.

The Holy Gate, popularly known as the Acute Brahma, was built in 1522. The gate served as the entrance to Vilnius and was built into the city wall. Above the gate stands the Chapel of Our Lady of Ostroba. Ostroba Brama has changed its appearance several times over the years. As a result it is a combination of Gothic and Renaissance elements. On the podium is a picture of the Lithuanian coat of arms and the head of Hermes in a helmet with wings.

The chapel was built by Carmelite hermit monks in the 17th century. In 1830, the church became stone. made in the style of classicism. The image of the Mother of God in the temple makes the cathedral a place of pilgrimage for believers from different countries.
