Towards Joniskis, Jelgava, Riga

The spot is located along Tilzes gatve, right after the cross with Ausros gatve, on E77 road heading to Joniskis, Jelgava, Riga. Just walk, or take a bus/micro-bus to the northern part of the city. It's immediately after a petrol station, near a bus stop, and on the right side you will see a road (Ausros gatve) and signs for other directions (Panevezys).
