Best places to see in Lithuania

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.

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.

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!

Lithuanian National Opera and Ballet Theatre
Theaters
Arias and Arabesques. Culture vultures flock to this opera house for high-brow theatrical thrills. Whether you’re into European classics like La Bohème, Russian masterpieces like Prince Igor or lesser-known local works, this is the place to come. Kiddie cognoscenti are welcome, too – on Sundays, they put on special performances for children. Bravo!

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.
Accommodations near Bernardine Park
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.
