Things to do in Vilnius

A city of remarkable architectural heritage and one of the largest medieval old towns in eastern and central Europe, Vilnius is warm and welcoming compact city that is perfect for a weekend getaway. 

 

With cool bars, spectacular views, thriving café culture and great street art, it is a wonder many people skip this part of the world on their tours of Europe. A rapidly growing city, Vilnius has much more to offer beyond its iconic landmarks which include the 16th-century Gate of Dawn, St. Anne's Church and the neoclassical Vilnius Cathedral.

The Museum of Genocide Victims

This former torture chamber, KGB office and prison, is not a fun location to visit, but definitely a must-see while in Vilnius. Documenting a sad aspect of Lithuania’s history, the museum is home to excellent exhibits on the horrors, which occurred over a period of 50 years.

 

Visits to the actual KGB prison cells form a picture of the history of the occupation, enabling you step back in time and revisit the harrowing experiences of the victims and the atrocities committed.

The Cathedral Square

A visit to the Cathedral Square is incomplete without stepping on the Stebuklas Miracle tile, on which you can spin around three times and make a wish. Said to have magical properties, people make their wishes after three spins in the hope that they will come true. 

The tile is also the end point for the Baltic Way, the longest ever human chain which was created on the 23rd of August, 1989 when almost two million people came together in a peaceful act against the Soviet Union. It was 370 miles long, the longest, unbroken human chain ended right on the Stebuklas Miracle tile.

The Gates of Dawn

A remnant of the old city wall that surrounded Vilnius, the Gates of Dawn is significant to Lithuania’s history, but also to Christianity. Within it is a small chapel with a shiny gold icon of the Virgin Mary which can be seen even from the street.

The Hill of Three Crosses

Erected on a hill in the city centre by Franciscan monks in the 17th century, these three crosses are a tribute to fellow monks who were killed. The crosses which were originally made of wood, and then later of stone when the wood began to rot, were destroyed by the Soviets.

They were thereafter rebuilt by the sculptor Henrikas Silgalis, and still stand to this day.

Vilnius Cuisine

Lithuanian cuisine is made up of tasty and hearty meals, which usually consist of potatoes, dairy, pork and dill. A few you would come across include, šaltibarščiai, a chill beetroot soup consisting of sour cream, yoghurt or buttermilk, and beetroot, topped with a hard-boiled egg or dill. 

 

There is also the potato pancake called bulvinai blynai, sometimes stuffed with meat or topped with delicious sauce. Another is cepelinai, where minced meat is deliciously wrapped inside a potato dumpling.
