OUR PICK #1
Offering the largest medieval Old Town in eastern and central Europe, capital city Vilnius is easily Lithuania’s top attraction. UNESCO-listed since 1994, the Old Town boasts a labyrinth of cobbled streets, parks, squares, restaurants and bars. There’s also a charming array of baroque churches, alongside more than 1,200 medieval buildings scattered throughout the city. Standing separately from its bell tower in the main square, the Cathedral Basilica of St Stanislaus is a must-see. As is the Gates of Dawn, home to the famed Renaissance painting of the Blessed Virgin Mary. And for the best views of the city, climb the hill in Kalnai Park to the Three Crosses monument.
