Vilnius

Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, is one of the most attractive cities in Eastern Europe. It draws attention, not only because of its unique architectural character but also because of its cultural events and attractions. During the first ten years of Lithuanian independence, the city began to draw in visitors. The number of tourists has consistently increased over the years and so have the tourist infrastructure and services offered by the country.

Find your trip

Bernardine Garden
Barboros Radvilaitės gatvė 8A, Vilnius

The city's much-loved Bernardine Garden dates back to as early as 1469. Take a walk through the greenery, marvel at the musical fountain that plays classical and modern tunes and see Vilnius' oldest oak tree, which is reportedly over 300 years old.

Vilnius Cathedral
Šventaragio gatvė, Vilnius

The Cathedral Basilica of St Stanislaus and St Ladislaus of Vilnius is Lithuania's most important sanctuary and a witness of the nation‘s baptism in 1387. This is also one of the greatest architectural examples of classicism in Vilnius. In the Cathedral's catacombs, you can find a museum of its history. Visitors can book an excursion (in the Cathedral's parsonage) and be professionally guided.

Šnekutis
Šv. Mikalojaus gatvė 15, Vilnius

With an extensive menu of Lithuanian food and drink at rock-bottom prices, Šnekutis is hard to beat. It's an essential stop for travellers on a tight budget, with an abundant offering of local specialities, which turns increasingly into a buzzing bar as the night progresses.

Belmontas
Belmonto gatvė 17A, Vilnius

The restaurant is established under the open sky and calls together up to 600 guests. Here, apart from eating and drinking, you get to enjoy the fresh air and nature and listen to something that no other restaurant is in possession of, the sound of brawling waterfalls.

Boutique Lino Kopos
Krokuvos gatvė 6, Vilnius

Lino Kopos means linen dunes, which sounds like a laundry nightmare, but is actually a fair reflection of the range and beauty of creations made exclusively from this versatile natural fibre. The design studio is the shop of the Lithuanian fashion designer Giedrius Šarkauskas, who creates designer garments for everyone. Giedrius label is absolutely unique to Lithuania. His collections include cold-season outerwear.

Akropolis
Ozo gatvė 25, Vilnius

Largest shopping mall in the Baltics States offering plenty of shopping, dining, and entertainment opportunities.

Best Time to Visit

Vilnius is a pleasant destination all year round, although it can get rather cold in the winter. The best times to plan your trip are the summer months (June–August), along with the shoulder season (May & September).
