Culture & Events

Not surprisingly for a capital city there’s a lot of culture to be had in Vilnius including some cracking classical music, a bit of worthy contemporary art and the occasional faded Western rock star. Going to concerts and festivals in and around the city is a relatively inexpensive affair, with concert tickets often costing less than €15. Standards tend to be high and the variety of events taking place is getting bigger every year. For information on purchasing tickets, ask your hotel reception or speak to the nice people at Vilnius Tourist Information. Read about more events and buy tickets online at the excellent
