The Old Town of Vilnius is one of the largest surviving old towns from medieval times in Northern Europe. The age of this old town is prevalent in the diverse cultural styles it portrays through it's architecture and layout. The old town of Vilnius has survived several different cultural time periods including gothic, renaissance, baroque and neoclassical architecture all standing side-by-side complimenting each other in harmony.

Vilnius Old Town Attractions

Firstly, have a look at the two main squares, Cathedral Square and Town Hall Square. Situated at the crossing of all the city's main streets, serving as the central location for the city's public life, Cathedral square is the location of the neo-classical Vilnius Cathedral. Look at one of the most inspiring neoclassical landmarks in all of Europe. If you are lucky you may come across one of the various cultural and political events ranging from townspeople gatherings, concerts and fairs to military parades and religious events held in this square. You will be standing in the most significant and widely-known symbol of Lithuania.

Continue on to stand in awe of the Town Hall at Town Hall square. It is a modern day representation of various reconstructions from different cultural periods throughout Vilnius' history. Today it stands in neo-classical form.

Any trip to Vilnius' Old Town should also include the Vilnius Architectural Ensemble, an elaborate architectural complex. This landmark is the oldest university of the Baltic states. Containing 13 magnificent courtyards it is a visual pleasure. It served as the Lithuanian representation in Brussels' Min-Europe park – a 1:25 scaled down miniature park in Brussels, Belgium containing reproductions of the most exemplary monuments in the European Union.
