Sveiki atvyke i Vilniu!

Vilnius is the capital and biggest city of Lithuania.

You can simply stroll through the Old Town and take a look at sights like Gediminas' Tower, the city's Gate of Dawn, the impressive Gothic church of St Anne or the Baroque Church of St Peter and St Paul.

One of the main sights is the reconstructed Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania, just in the heart of Vilnius, within the confines of Lower Castle.

And then there is the “Republic” of Užupis, Vilnius’ Bohemian and artistic district, full of creativity.

And don't forget to try the specialty of cepelinai potatoe dumplings or, for the daring, šaltibaršciai cold beetroot soup.
