Make the most of the short Lithuanian summer by spending as much time outside as you can, preferably witha bottle of beer in your hand. Arguably the best place to dothis in Vilnius is at one of the city’s splendid summer bars.Read more on p.38.If you’re reading this in October and you’re wondering why the supermarkets are full of candles, the short answer toyour bewilderment is that it’s almost All Saints’ Day.

Published three times per year.
Greetings from sunny Vilnius, where at the time of going to press the city is caught in the grip of an extendedspell of stupidly hot weather. Under the circumstancesit seems fitting to announce another rare event, namely a temporary streamlining of operations here at 
Vilnius In Your Pocket
HQ. For the first decade or so of its life,
Vilnius In Your Pocket
was published five times a year before being cranked up to six issues as the economy went into overdrive. Eagle-eyed economists will havenoticed that the Lithuanian economy has sufferedimmense damage over the last couple of years, a fact that led to the decision to reduce the frequency of the guide. The copy of 
Vilnius In Your Pocket
you’renow holding in your hands will be out and about untilDecember, although rest assured the quality remainsthe same. Thus you’ll find in the same issue a featureon summer bars (see p.38) alongside some backgroundinformation on the annual trip to the cemetery made inthis part of the world on All Saints’ Day (see p.56), anevent that requires the donning of scarves, gloves andwoolly hats as winter fast approaches. Despite countlessrecent attempts by the locals to completely destroy it,the economy is finally on the up, albeit very slowly. Helpdo your bit by visiting one of the oddest yet beguiling cities in Europe and spending all your money. Comments,suggestions, high praise and death threats as usual tovilnius@inyourpocket.com if you’d be so kind.Revealing two Vilnius treats in onephotograph, in the background onthe wall are the works of art known
collectively as Literatų Gatvė (see
p.53), the very name of the street on which they’re found. The chairsand tables in the foreground makeup a dazzling innovation courtesy 
of the nice people at Senamiesčio Krautuvė. Read
more about them on p.67.
