Spring and summer are absolutely the best time to visit Vilnius. The parks and leafy hills around the Old Town are in leaf and bloom, and tourists, residents and students alike are dipping their toes into the bubbling Vilnia, that picturesque little river that furtively loops around the playful self-declared Republic of Užupis. We at VIYP are eager for another eventful season of new restaurant openings, refreshed menus, hot nightclubs and long summer nights.
With every passing year Vilnius becomes more enticing, its labyrinthine Old Town’s cobblestone lanes and courtyards echoing with the buzz of a European capital with its very own distinctive ambiance that’s so hard to put into words.We advise you to just feel it and enjoy it.
We have been plodding, lurking and gazing around town for more than 20 years now, watching colourless ruins and dodgy districts evolve into twisting pastel-shaded rows of houses offering fascinating and individual shops, cafés, wine and beer bars, great restaurants and other places to while away your hard-earned spare time. After all these years, the city is now as exciting as it’s ever been – coming into its very own seductive spring and summer after being left out in the cold for so long.
