Vilnius
The Essential
Highly recommended
Lying in the east of the country, Lithuania's capital is a showcase for its architectural heritage, bearing witness to a tumultuous past while looking to the future. The city's iconic Baroque buildings sit alongside trendy shops, historical museums are complemented by art exhibitions, and lively districts contrast with the void left by the extermination of its Jewish community. But this city, with its lively student population, is moving forward.

Lithuania: the colours of Vilnius

With its sinuous, medieval layout, Baroque architecture and multicoloured facades, Vilnius has plenty of allure. Still searching for its identity, the Lithuania’s capital has survived the grim hours of Nazism and Soviet oppression.
