Best places to see in Lithuania

The Gates of Dawn
Monuments
Ave Maria! This 16th-century gateway is attached to a chapel that occupies a special place in Lithuanian hearts. Its painting of Our Lady of Vilnius has been a lucky talisman to the townsfolk for centuries, healing ailments and warding off evils. Stroll along the courtyard, step through the baby-blue archway and pay your respects.

Museum of Genocide Victims
Museums
Lithuania has a long history of changing hands. In the twentieth century alone, it lurched between German, Soviet and independent Lithuanian rule six times. This moving museum honours the victims of this violent fluctuation, and its location in the old headquarters of both the KGB and the Gestapo adds an extra poignancy. Take a deep breath and face up to the weight of history.

St Anne's Church
Landmarks
“Magnifique”! During the French invasion of 1812, Napoleon Bonaparte said that he wanted to take St. Anne’s Church home on the palm of his hand. You can see where he was coming from – the church does have a pocket-sized beauty to it, like a grand Gothic cathedral in miniature. Take a tour of this red-brick city icon or gaze across from the picnic spot in Bernardine Park.

Vilnius TV Tower
Popular Areas
Beam me up! This telecommunications tower soars above the city skyline like a giant syringe. For a romantic dinner at altitude, whizz 200 metres up to the revolving restaurant. As night falls, you see the city transform into a twinkling ocean of lights below. In December, the tower is draped with the longest Christmas lights around, creating a colossal Christmas-tree shape.
Accommodations near Vilnius TV Tower
Gediminas' Tower
Landmarks
Vilnius vistas. This stubby octagonal tower stands on green-tufted Gediminas Hill, overlooking the cityscape below. It’s all that remains from the 14th-century Upper Castle that once dominated the skyline. Chug up the funicular, then clamber up the spiral staircase. On your way, scale models and dioramas tell the tower’s story. From the roof, the panoramas stretch for miles.
Accommodations near Gediminas' Tower
Bernardine Park
Parks
Pleasant pathways and luscious lawns. Bernardine Park is a fresh hit of greenery right in the heart of the city. Once the site of a sacred pagan forest, it became a monastery garden in the 14th century. These days, it’s a free-for-all for locals of all creeds and ages. Nippers frolic in playgrounds as coffee-sipping mums watch on, and grizzled old-timers engage in intense chess battles.
