Vilnius Old Town

Address: Senamiestis, Vilnius

It is hard to put into words that spirit, with which the old part of the city pulsates- every corner of it, every tower, every street. Not without reason, the city has been recognized by UNESCO as one of the most beautiful places in the Old Continent, with perhaps the largest baroque old town in the whole of Eastern and Central Europe. Vilnius is full of history and full of life. Even visiting for the very first time, you feel like you have been here before, like it’s home. It is hard to describe- you need to feel, see the city yourself. After all, Vilnius is just like an architectural style textbook, in which, buildings from the late Gothic to Classic periods can be found. Reflections of the Baroque period here are extremely distinct. St. John’s Church, with its fascinating old bell tower, St. Casimir’s Church with its crown-like dome-are just a couple of examples. The Old Town, surrounded by nature and a developing city, is where historic legacy and contemporary culture are harmoniously paired. You will stand witness to this by taking a walk along the banks of the Neris River. You will be mesmerized by the atmosphere of Vilnius well before you have made the recommended 10,000 daily steps.
