  • Vilnius: Then and Now Old Town Tour

    1. Vilnius: Then and Now Old Town Tour

    Vilnius is a beautiful city, renowned for it's green spaces and Baroque architecture. It is also a very old city with lots of history, which nuances are best presented by a local Lithuanian. We recommend starting your tour where the history of the city began 10,000 years ago at the Cathedral Square. Other meeting points in the Old town would also work, however this one is recommended. Walking through important buildings, streets and other objects you will find out how Lithuania emerged from the swamps to become a self-sufficient country, how it came to its fall, what the situation during the Soviet occupation and what the situation is now.

    A great way of exploring Vilnius and finding the hidden gems (even for the local people). Our guide Ugne was full of knowledge about the city and its history. We had an amazing time!

A great way of exploring Vilnius and finding the hidden gems (even for the local people). Our guide Ugne was full of knowledge about the city and its history. We had an amazing time!

I had two hours together with Ugne and it was really interesting! A lot of interesting history and we had time to get to all “checkpoints” that the tour offered.

Very informative and interesting tour, we've visited places that we would never visit alone. Thank you, Ugnė!
