Vilnius

Vilnius In Your Pocket

share

Every summer, Vilnius surges back to life after the long Baltic winter. The climate can almost reach Mediterranean heights, which perfectly suits the Old Town's stunning Baroque and Renaissance style buildings. Sitting at one of the countless tables outside a restaurant, bar or café with a view of an evocative lane or courtyard is one of the city's great pleasures, feeling the infectious atmosphere of being part of a small crowd of friendly locals and visitors eating and drinking outside, voices echoing and glasses clinking among the romantically illuminated buildings. It can feel like 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 where to go and what to see, eat and experience during your time in the Lithuanian capital. We also have a list of what's on. If you're here for a few days, consider a trip to Trakai with its fairytale Island Castle surrounded on all sides by picturesque lakes. There's a short overview in this guide.
Online we have infinitely more content, with feature articles on culture, customs, history, sports, where to travel to in Lithuania, plus some pointers on local food. 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 unique cities Kaunas and Klaipėda and the sandy coastal resorts Palanga and Nida.
