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.

Hill of Three Crosses
Monuments
Hilltop hangout. This hill is tailor-made for a wee ramble through woodland. Wind up the path through the trees and you’ll emerge at the crest, where three white crosses stand silhouetted against the sky. Down below, the view sweeps across Vilnius’ ruddy rooftops to the horizon beyond. It’s a real Sunday stroll classic.

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!
Accommodations near Old Ensemble of Vilnius University
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!

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.
