Vilnius, Lithuania – the unpretentious Baltic Capital
— with an Old Town core having the intimate feel of a large village. Beautiful parks and green spaces comprise nearly half of the city’s land area, further enhancing the pleasant walkability factor. Eclectic architectural styles abound —including Gothic, Renaissance & Neo-Classic—but it’s claim to fame is derived from possessing the most Baroque Architecture of any Central or Eastern European Old Town.
Plentiful dining, drinking and nightlife options available — many in the typically exuberant Eastern European mode.
Deservingly designated as a European Capital of Culture in 2009 — along with the Old Town’s inclusion on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1994.
Bottom Line = Vilnius, along with its picturesque environs, is a Baltic Experience not to be missed!
