We present new exact solutions describing motions of closed segmented strings in AdS3 in terms of elliptic functions. The existence of analytic expressions is due to the integrability of the classical equations of motion, which in our examples reduce to instances of the McMillan map. We also obtain a discrete evolution rule for the motion in AdS3 of arbitrary bound states of fundamental strings and D1-branes in the test approximation.
