"Jerusalem of the North." - Napolean Bonaparte

Vilnius is lesser known than its Baltic counterparts Tallinn and Riga. But the city astounds visitors. Of course there's the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Baroque Old Town. But once entering the narrow streets of Vilnius you'll discover a variety of building styles, from Gothic to Renaissance to Classicism, with a little Modernism thrown in for good measure. The Old Town of Vilnius is one of the largest surviving old town complexes in Northern Europe, but there's more than buildings to marvel at. Vilnius has a thriving cultural, restaurant and bar scene.

Catholics, Protestants, Orthodox, Jews, and other more rare religions are all represented in Vilnius. Indeed, Jews were once the city's largest ethnic group. The most impressive place of worship is the Vilnius Cathedral and its bell tower, but the rebuilt Royal Palace of Lithuania is also worth a stop. Vilnius is one of the only European cities that allow hot air balloons directly over the city center, making for a perfect way to get another perspective on the impressive Old Town. On the other side of the river is the artsy Uzupis neighborhood, a tongue-in-cheek self-declared republic with its own constitution, with articles like, "Everyone has the right to be in doubt, but this is not an obligation."

What I love about Vilnius

Bettina

Central Europe Team Leader

Vilnius has many different faces. It is modern, old, full of history, smallish but still very versatile at the same time. I really loved the unique neighborhoods, and that it is very walkable. There are great museums, cafes, restaurants and some exciting day trip options nearby. So a lot to explore :) My most favorite experience in Vilnius was a flight with a Hot Air Balloon. Probably the most unique thing to do in the region.

Things to do in Vilnius

The Old Town of Vilnius is easily explored on foot and the best way to learn about it is a private walking tour, but if you'd prefer to move at a quicker pace, a tour with a private driver can be arranged. The must-see sight outside of Vilnius is definitely Trakai, a photogenic red brick castle on an island in the middle of a lake. For an unusual view of it, we can even arrange a hot air balloon flight. When we send you your customized itinerary you will be able to choose additional excursions to include in your vacation package or consider adding later.

I would unequivocally and enthusiastically recommend JayWay Travel to anyone looking for a trusted agent to plan their vacation. Fantastic service, excellent value for the money. My husband and I are seasoned global travelers, but we’re also busy professionals, and simply didn’t have the time to plan our own Baltics adventure. We took a leap of faith and outsourced the trip planning to JayWay Travel and we are so happy we did. The trip exceeded our expectations on every front!
