Vilnius

Gediminas

  Katedros Aikštė     23 Sep 2019

Unveiled in September 1996, the monument to Gediminas (Pol. Giedymin, 1275-1341), who famously founded Vilnius in 1323 and who was also the Grand Duke of Lithuania from 1316 until his death, is located more or less on the spot where a howling iron wolf that inspired the moving of the country’s capital from Trakai allegedly appeared in his dream. Strangely, the aforementioned wolf that stands beneath Gediminas has been fashioned not from metal as one would expect, but from stone.
