If You think Vilnius is only about baroque, You are wrong









Huge quarters of 19th- early 20th century architecture is all around the old town!

Early 20th century neo-gothic/neo-romanic buildings in the New Town district.











Nice bay window!

Vilnius is not only about magnificient architecture, but also a place with quiet corners and stunning nature!


Views towards the centre.









A fan of hillwalking?
The highest hill of Vilnius (236 m.) is located only ~3,5 km from the Cathedral square (90m) and offers great views.



Hill of The Three Croses (165 m.).












Towards the regional park.











Remember, no mather in what part of Vilnius you are,
you will need no more than three steps to reach mother nature
(forest/hill/marsh/lake/huge outcrop or just another abandoned railway tunnel with EU preserved bats)

Easily There are 3 or 4 skiing trases in Vilnius.
Vilnius was built in the place, where the last glacier stopped, on the border of the ice and ice-free land. Northern part of nowadays' Vilnius was covered with the ice, and southern part and further to the south-east direction- Medininkai, was not. When the glacier was retreating, the water fell down from the glacier thus making huge canyons. Vilnius' old town was established exactly in one of this canyons near Neris river, surrounded by hills up to 100m high. The flowing river deepened the valley and the hills, previously squeezed by the ice and now free from it, were growing (as scientists say, they are continuing to do so even today by some 3-4 mm a year ).
The city was built, but now no matter where you are, hills dominate the horizon.

So this is really standard view in Vilnius (the lowest point-82 m.,the highest point- 236 m.),
although the highest point in Lithuania is just only some silly 295 m.

(it is easy to measure the height of the hill using the electric pole
as a unit of measurement )

Lithuanian Salzburg or Grenoble you may call it

And if you are interesting in skiing, you can do it in Lithuania not only in winter, but also in summer then there are +30 outside
Lithuanian resort Druskininkai has built an indoor skiing complex recently, one of the best in the world.
Unfortunately, Vilnius was late in this race, oh well, good for (click me)>> Druskininkai - superb Lithuanian town!

There was the garden city movement in the urban planning of 19th and 20th centuries, but most cities failed.
Vilnius was successful!
