Vilnius

Vilnius

Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, is one of the most frequently visited cities of 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 became a tourist attraction centre. It is, therefore, not surprising that the number of tourists consistently increased during these ten years and that the tourist infrastructure and services developed at the same time.

Cathedral - Basilica

The Cathedral Basilica 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.

The tower, a long standing symbol of Vilnius, is located on the 48 metre-high hill. It is named after the City’s founder, Gediminas, the Grand Duke of Lithuania. This is the only remaining part of the Upper Castle, which stood here from the 10th until late 14th century. There is an observation deck on the top of the tower, a great place to appreciate a magnificent panorama. Gediminas’ Tower can be reached by foot or a funicular.
