Best places to see in Lithuania

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.

Cathedral Square
Landmarks
Cathedral Square is home to a classic Vilnius tradition. There’s a paving slab next to the cathedral with the word “stebuklas” (miracle) written on it. Legend has it that if you stand on it, make a wish and spin through 360 degrees, it will be granted. Head there to wish upon a square, or kick back on a bench and watch as skaters hone their tricks.

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.

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
Old Ensemble of Vilnius University
Institutions
Boffins, bookworms and brainboxes – many of Lithuania’s greatest minds have studied at this university. Founded back in the 16th century, it’s actually one of the oldest in Eastern Europe. Its thirteen courtyards are a grandiose window into the past, with an array of Renaissance, Baroque and Gothic architecture. Fire up your synapses and soak up the old-time intellectual vibe!
