When I told people that I was going to Vilnius, the majority stared back at me blankly. “Where is Vilnius?”, they asked. Well my friends, Vilnius is of course Lithuania’s beautiful capital.
Vilnius is a shining jewel in the Baltics’ crown.
The city is beautiful and has an enormous UNESCO listed Old Town. The locals are very friendly, the food is comforting and there are plenty of cosy cafes to relax in. The city also has it’s own bohemian, art district Užupis which is often compared to Montmartre in Paris or Chrisitiania in Copenhagen. If this isn’t enough to convince you, then you should know that Lithuania is a nation of sports fans (Basketball in particular).
So now you know. Check out my guide to Vilnius and book your flights!
