Top 5 travel tips in Vilnius
As we said before, the listed UNESCO Old Town is home to impressive buildings of baroque architecture, winding cobblestoned streets and picturesque churches. Along Pilies Gatve (Castle street) you will get excellent views of the remains of Gediminas’ Castle, stunning architecture, plenty of cosy cafes and restaurants and the best shops selling Lithuania’s main products, amber jewellery and linen. Cathedral square and the beautiful cathedral are a must as well as the red brick structure of St. Anne and Bernardine’s Church Complex. Stikliu Street and Zydu Street show you the formerly Jewish area of the city, now a shopping area with a couple of good restaurants to eat at - Bamb Alyne and Alyne Leciai.2. Take a day trip to Trakai Castle
One thing highly recommended while in Vilnius is to take a day trip to Trakai Castle. Just half an hour by bus or a 20 minutes ride by car, Trakai Castle is a popular sight. This 14th-century castle is surrounded by Lake Galve. Get an entrance ticket and visit the castle. Spend at least half a day walking the stunning surrounding areas.3. Make your wish come true!
Stebuklas, the “Miracle Tile” is for Vilnius what the Fontana di Trevi is to Rome. Not exactly a wishing well, but according to legend, this tile tucked in Cathedral Square has magical powers and it grants your inner wishes to make them come true. Will it happen or not? Whether it is true or not, this tile has its own history. Under Sovietic Rule, two million people made a human chain by holding hands, starting in Estonia, going through Latvia and ending at this very tile in Vilnius. Showing the strength of humanity, the tile is also a symbol of good luck if you happen to walk over it by chance. Give it a go and see what happens.4. Visit the Užupis Republic
Considered as a hipster area, the Užupis district declared itself a separate republic. Ever since, this bohemian commune has had a president, a foreign ministry and their own constitution. The area is a plethora of art galleries, splendid independent shops and excellent eateries. The weekly market for organic produce takes place every Thursday. In here you can find delicious honey, pickles, greens, smoked meats and some homemade cheeses. Local jam and preserves of rosehip and sea buckthorn are specialities of the area. Grab some bites at the street food stalls and enjoy a tasty burger, pastries and local foods. For a refreshing sip of local beers have a pint at Špunka.5. An Uptown Bazaar experience
Some might say this is a food court but Uptown Bazaar is much more than that. A wide array of dining options, hands down, offering the best international cuisine. National dishes, tapas, Thai or Asian. Hang around and bring your appetite with you. Have a great eating experience at the best place to eat in Vilnius.
