About Vilnius

Vilnius – the capital of Lithuania is the city situated on the boundary of two ancient – Latin and Byzantine – civilizations. People from all different nationalities, religions and cultures live here and have created a colorful city mosaic. Vilnius has one of the largest Old Towns in Central and Eastern Europe where the buildings of different styles and the network of medieval streets are very well preserved. The Old Town of Vilnius is part of the UNESCO World Heritage List.

In 2023, Lithuania is celebrating a historic event – the 700th anniversary of Vilnius! The time leading up to this jubilee offers you a unique opportunity to discover the legacy built over many centuries, listen to impressive stories, and celebrate the future of the city. Spread the news about Vilnius’ anniversary around the world!

Vilnius has always been an important European city and a cultural and scientific centre in its region. So the anniversary of Vilnius is a special event both for Lithuania and Europe. The 700-year-old city retains its youthful spirit and welcomes the future with open arms. Let’s create a celebration together and travel into a new century of possibilities!

Excursions

To get to know the Lithuania country and its culture better, we recommend two unique excursion destinations – our capital Vilnius, and the historic town of Trakai.

  • An excursion around Vilnius is a great opportunity to get to know the capital of Lithuania while riding a bus and listening to an informative audio recording about the city's most important objects, places, history, and people.

  • Take a half-day tour to Trakai, the former capital of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. Built in the 14th century, the impressive Trakai Castle sits on an island in the middle of Lake Galv?. A historical town, the castle, and the beautiful natural surroundings are what make Trakai one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country. A comfortable bus will take you to Trakai in no time – it’s about 28 kilometers from Vilnius. An English-speaking guide will tell you more about the history of this important Lithuanian landmark.
