Vilnius

Thanks to Laima from Leeds, who sent me this postcard from her home town Vilnius in Lithuania. It shows the Gediminas’ Tower which is part of the Upper Castle where you can have a wonderful view over the old town of Vilnius. The Old Town of Vilnius is one of the best preserved medieval old towns in Northern Europe.  It is a place where some of Europe’s greatest architectural styles – gothicrenaissancebaroque and neoclassical – stand side by side and complement each other. Therefore, it became an UNESCO world heritage site in 1994. Well worth a visit from what I could look up on the internet and certainly on my bucket list to visit.

If you have been to Vilnius, what other places will be of interest?

  1. The University is a “city inside of the city”, with fabulous buildings, streets and churches.The BAsilica, which is right at the heart of Vilnius, must absolutely be seen, but you can’t miss it, as it’s very big. And All the Old city is very unic and interesting.Walking through streets is a real pleasure , but better stay inside of walls, for your safety.
