LITHUANIA - VILNIUS
A Charming and Unmistakably a city of Great Beauty
The Character of Vilnius, the Lithuanian capital retained its beauty partly because of its isolated location. Yet its history had given it more multi-cultural feel than the countries other cities.
Although its old town is one of the largest in Europe, Vilnius is a surprisingly compact city that can easily be explored. We begun with the Old Town, and its baroque treasures such as the Vilnius Cathedral in the north end Gates of dawn in the south. For the Panoramic view of the Old town we walked up to the remaining upper castle of Vilnius. There was a marathon event during the day that we were exploring. We were able to see the KGB Museum and its prison which was very heavy in heart to see.
Vilnius is also as good base to explore the Central Lithuania.
