Wander the evocative cobblestone streets, squares and courtyards of the Old Town, looking up at the tiny windows and towering spires that have been there for centuries, and it's not hard to feel a sense of history. You might look up at the House of Signatories and picture the rebirth of a nation there in 1918. Or you might pass through the Gates of Dawn and imagine the chaotic crush of the frozen remnants of Napoleon's army as they tried to enter the city, the bloodthirsty Cossacks hot on their heels. In these pages, we describe both of these incredible events in detail.
But if history's not your thing, we also have a guided tour of the best places in the Old Town to discover the finest of new Lithuanian design, from stunning jewellery to fashions and footwear to... well, chocolate. And all kinds of eye-catching and brilliantly designed stuff for the body and the home.
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.
