Vilnius

The Essential
Highly recommended
Lying in the east of the country and with around 550 000 inhabitants, Vilnius is Lithuania's capital and a showcase for its architectural heritage, bearing witness to a tumultuous past yet looking to the future. The city's iconic Baroque buildings share the limelight with trendy shops, history museums and art exhibitions, and lively quarters (in part animated by its population of around 25 000 students), that contrast with the terrible void left by the extermination of its Jewish community.
