The Old and New Sides of Vilnius
There are few capitals in Europe that can truly be described as gems, but Vilnius is certainly amongst those few. Often overlooked for all the wrong reasons, this beautiful Lithuanian capital boasts an ancient meets modern vibe, filled with historical sights and the cutting edge of cool, all at the same time! This Vilnius city tour will help you to discover all the excitement that Vilnius has to offer, from a local perspective.
Vilnius’ Old Town is a fascinating fusion of Lithuanian, Jewish, Polish, and Russian cultures, evident in the churches, shops, and all the delicious food you’ll find in this area. Meet your local guide at Vilnius Cathedral, and wander the cobblestone streets, imagining what life was like centuries ago when this was a thriving medieval town. Stop in at a little church admired by many — this is the church that Napoleon visited and wanted to take home with him!
We’ll continue to tour Vilnius by experiencing the hip, bohemian atmosphere of an independent district favored by artists, musicians, and free-spirited travelers. This neighborhood even calls itself an Independent Republic, and even has a President, Premier, Constitution and Independence Day – celebrated on April Fools’ Day.
Your local guide will be able to fill you in on all the local stories behind this district and believe us, there are a lot! Gritty street art, colorful cafes, vibrant murals, interesting locals, and galleries brimming with paintings make this place a popular spot for photographers, so don’t forget your camera! Here you’ll be able to snap the bizarre sights and unique wonders that make this neighborhood so extraordinary.
Once you’ve had your quirky fix for the day, we’ll head back into the Old Town and finish this Vilnius tour in the best way possible — by savoring some traditional Lithuanian delicacies and a local beer (or non-alcoholic drink for the kids) from small local breweries.
At the end of the tour of Vilnius, feel free to ask for your guide’s advice about other points of interest, or good local pubs or restaurants that are not to be missed — they’re the experts, after all!
