Best places to see in Lithuania

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
