Vilnius, Lithunia

Vilnius


Located in the Southeast of Lithuania at the confluence of the Neris and Vilnia Rivers, Vilnius is the capital of, and largest city in, the country. As of 2005, the city had a population of 553,904.

At 1.4 square miles (3.6 km2), Vilnius includes one of the largest old towns in Europe. There are nearly 1,500 buildings in the old town, and although the city is widely regarded as a Baroque city, the architecture encompasses Gothic, Renaissance and other styles as well as Baroque.

Three locations to be on the look out for when you visit Vilnius are:
  1. Gediminas Tower - This is the only remaining part of the Vilnius Castle complex (Lithuanian: Vilniaus piliu kompleksas or Vilniaus pilys), parts of which date back to 1409. Gediminas Tower is a very much a symbol of Vilnius and the Lithuanian nation, being depicted on the national currency, mentioned in numerous patriotic poems, and songs, and having been the site in 1988 where the Lithuanian flag was raised during the early stages of the modern independence movement.

  2. Cathedral Square (Lithuanian: Katedros aikšte) - Like Gediminas Tower, Cathedral Square is also very much a symbol of Lithuania. The site is also a popular location for street fairs, parades, concerts, etc.

  3. Vilnius TV Tower (Lithuanian: Vilniaus televizijos bokštas) - This distinctive tower, standing 1071 feet (326.5 meters) tall is the tallest building in Lithuania. It was at this site that 14 unarmed civilians lost their lives, and approximately 700 more injured, when they tried to prevent the Soviet military seizing control of the tower (in an attempt to surpress the Lithuanian independence movement) on January 13th 1991. Today there is a museum to these events on the ground floor of the tower, and the "Paukšciu takas" (Lithuanian for "Milky Way") cafe on the rotating observation deck, 520 feet (160 meters) above ground level. Additionally, for braver souls, bungee jumps are available to the public from the roof of the observation deck!

Product Description:
Lithuania Travel Guide. Vacation, Honeymoon Business Guide. Lithuania never ceases to amaze its guests with magnificent nature landmarks. The country is home to approximately 200 parks, 50 nature reserves and as many as 2500 lakes. Simply every park of the country is perfect for rest, where you can relax under the crone of centuries old trees, enjoy the crystal clean water in a lake or walk in a beautiful garden. The historic heritage of the country is no less interesting, and the best way to start your exploration of Lithuania is to visit its capital, Vilnius. The capital is famous for its magnificent religious complexes such as St. Anne’s Church, one of the most famous churches in Vilnius. The building is made in gothic style and its facades are decorated with amazing patterns made with bricks of different colour. The three altars and an ancient organ are the most precious elements of the inner design. The church got its current look in the middle of the 16th century. Before that there was a small wooden bell tower on the site of the modern church. Vilnius is home to the National Museum, the oldest museum in the country. It was founded yet in 1855. Museum collections are dedicated to history and culture of the country. Yet in the 19th century a part of the collection was transferred to Moscow; currently, the exhibition of the museum includes approximately 800 thousand items. Visitors will see large collections of paintings, weapons, work tools, utensils, jewellery, furniture, medals, historic documents, maps and other ethnographic and historic items. The Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania is an amazing example of medieval architecture. The building of the castle was started in the 15th century and lasted a few hundred years. The castle changed its owners several times, that’s why it took so long to finish the construction. Today, the palace features amazing combination of renaissance and gothic styles, and visitors are welcome to see its beautiful halls and rooms, and listen to many interesting stories about the past of the building.
