Stebuklas = Miracle in Lithuanian. Now there’s a decent addition to my vocabulary I can work into everyday conversation.
I would like one coffee and one stebuklas please.
Now there is this legend that there are 7 stones hidden around Vilnius with the word ‘Stebuklas’ written on them. The legend goes if you find a stone you can stand on it, make a wish, turn around three times jumping in the air with your eyes closed. And if you end up looking in the same direction your wish will come true.
I found one of the stones, here it is. Should my wish come true I will definitely be blogging about it, trust me.
The stone is a part of the very large Cathedral Square.
