Best places to see in Lithuania

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!

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.

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.

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
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.
