Vilnius is the capital of Lithuania and its largest city, with a population of 539,939 as of 2014. Vilnius is located in the southeast part of Lithuania and is the second largest city of the Baltic states.

Vilnius is the seat of the Vilnius City Municipality and of the Vilnius District Municipality. It is also the capital of Vilnius County. The first known written record of Vilnius as the Lithuanian capital is known from Gediminas' letters in 1323.

Vilnius is classified as a Gamma global city according to GaWC studies, and is known for its Old Town of beautiful architecture, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994. Its Jewish influence until the 20th century has led to it being described as the "Jerusalem of Lithuania" and Napoleon named it "the Jerusalem of the North" as he was passing through in 1812. In 2009, Vilnius was the European Capital of Culture, together with the Austrian city of Linz.

I visited Vilnius some weeks ago, previously I have only been to Riga and Tallinn. I will also make a thread about it. Vilnius is really underrated, good prices, nice historical buildings, parks etc. :)
Your plane was flying really close to the old town it seems!

I'm so impressed with the lots of green patches even in the old area and I would love
to see some shots at street level of those heritage buildings with great architecture
and the nice looking people that make the city lovely and vibrant.

very nice shots and the heritage area is full of characters.
thank you!
it's a hidden gem in Vilnius. the concept is really funny and creative. nice cafes, restaurants, galleries and shops. The atmosphere here is very nice and calming. This republic had its own rules, one of them is: everyone has the right to live by the river Vilnelė, and the river Vilnelė has the right to flow by everyone.. isn't that just great? :cheers:
