I was waiting for this thread. Great photos of Vilnius - my favorite city in the world (although, I guess, it may have something to do with the fact that it is my hometown ).

Seriously, it is very exciting to see photos of the place from a perspective that is so different from my own and most others that I have seen. Much appreciated.

There may be some visual similarities but overall they are different cities. Both in terms or architecture and general atmosphere (architecture, landscape, urban density, planning and... religion as well).

I´m sure you´re right, I´ve never been to Vilnius. But I have to say that the old town pics looks very much like Tallinn. I bet the atmosphere is different though.

Excellent photos. Well done.

Mr Bricks: Tallinn and Vilnius only share very recent history. Before the Russian empire, Lithuania was Catholic and had much more to do with Poland and Central Europe than the Nordic countries that ruled Estonia! You can clearly see that in old architecture. Vilnius is a Baroque city, Tallinn is not!
