Vilnius

Vilnius In Your Pocket

share

One of the wonderful things about living in Vilnius is witnessing how, every spring and early summer, the city starts to come alive again after the Baltic winter (which seems to get longer every year). No matter how vicious the winter blizzards have been, somehow shoots and blooms start to appear. As soon as they possibly can, the bars, restaurants and cafés dust off their outdoor furniture and terraces, and pretty soon the infectious atmosphere of being part of a small crowd of locals and visitors enjoying the pleasures of drinking and eating outside, everyone clinking glasses, voices echoing among romantically illuminated buildings, makes the Old Town feels like it's the best place in the world.
If you're on your own, take this city guide with you for company. We'll tell you a bit about Lithuania's fascinating culture, how the locals are rediscovering their ethnic 'etno' culture, how Lithuania pioneered a unique niche in art photography, and even how much the Lithuanians love their coffee.
In this guide you'll also find the best of what to do, see, eat and drink. We have feature articles on culture, customs, history, sports, where to travel to in Lithuania, plus some pointers on local food. We also have a list of what's on. The print guide is published four times a year, available at selected hotels, bookshops and kiosks. Don't forget to check out Lithuania's other cities Kaunas and Klaipėda and the sandy coastal resorts Palanga and Nida.
