Once a flourishing capital of Grand Duchy of Lithuania formed by historic alliances with neighboring Poland, Vilnius is today a modern European city with a rich cultural heritage to offer.
We will start our stroll through the cobbled streets of the Old Town with a walk down the magnificent Gediminas Avenue at the Gates of Dawn, the only remaining historical gate to Vilnius city. Gediminas’ Tower is the beautiful historic remaining part of the Upper Castle in Vilnius, which was first completed in 1409 by Grand Duke Vytautas. It is possible to climb to the top of the hill on foot or by taking a unique funicular railway with panoramic view of the city with the Neris river below. The tower museum showcases models of Vilnius castles from the 14th to the 17th centuries and armament.
Most governmental institutions of Lithuania are concentrated on this main street named after the Grand Duke of Lithuania, Gediminas. We will see the National Drama Theatre, Bank of Lithuania, National Library and City Hall Square.
Located in the geographical center of Europe, the blend of Eastern and Western traditions is visible with both beautiful Roman Catholic and Russian Orthodox churches lining the old town streets. Some of the most impressive facades belong to the Gothic beauty of St. Anne´s Church and Saint Casimir Jesuit church with an outstanding dome.
Following a sneak into the hidden courtyards of Vilnius University we will also enjoy an inside visit of the Vilnius University. The stately Presidential Palace is on our way to the spiritual heart of Vilnius at the Cathedral Square.
According to local legend, Grand Duke Gediminas built the city with the will of gods after he dreamed of an Iron Wolf standing on top of this hill howling as strong and loud as a hundred wolves.
The tour comes to an end in the old town.
