Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, is renowned for its baroque architecture, which is especially evident in the medieval old town. However, the buildings on these partly cobblestone streets represent various styles and times-from the neoclassical St. Stanislaus Cathedral to the Gothic St. Anna Church. The gate of dawn of the 16th century, which houses the icon of the Virgin Mary, once provided entry to the city. Even a visit to Vilnius for only a few days gives the illusion that a short holiday has been made in the nearby south.
You can enter Vilnius either by plane via Vilnius Airport (VNO). You can make your way across the city by public transport, of course. However, if you want to visit Vilnius in a more formal, comfortable and simple way, consider using our charter bus service. Coach Charter Germany

We welcome you to the top ten ideas for your next trip to Vilnius:
1. Uzupis Republic
The Uzupe Republic is one of the most bohemian locations in Vilnius. Locals call this the heart of Vilnius. It was originally a very bad and even dangerous area, but poets, painters and musicians filled it with art and imagination, making it a respected and even prestigious area. It's an odd location, because artists have proclaimed their republic in the center of the city. Užupe has its own anthem, rules, president, and 12-strong army. This is the best place to continue evening entertainment and relaxation in Vilnius.
2. Gediminas' tower
The Gediminas Tower is one of the most famous sights in the region. The base of the Gediminas Tower was laid as early as the 14th century. There is a small museum on the upper floors of the tower, where you can see various exhibits related to the history of the country. The tower is popular with tourists because it provides a wonderful view of Vilnius. Also, the steep climb to the tower is worth it-after a long drive, you'll be able to push your legs through the beautiful park and the winding path on the hill.
3. Hill of Three Crosses
The Three Crosses were first erected in the 17th century on a hill where the castle once stood, which was demolished by the Crusaders in 1390. Legend has it that the first three crosses of the hill were built in the memory of the Franciscans. In 1916, however, three huge concrete crosses were built there, which were demolished by the Soviets in the 1950s, but this place was still considered sacred by the people. However, these crosses, which still stand on the top of the mountain, were raised in 1989, symbolizing the people's attempts to reclaim independence. White crosses can be seen almost everywhere in the middle of Vilnius. However, to take a closer look, it is worth taking the long way up the high mountain, up the steep stairs. This mountain also has a wonderful panoramic view of the city.
4. Austra Gate
The Old Town of Vilnius is full of beautiful churches and monasteries. The Austra or Dawn Gate is one of the most beautiful sanctuaries. Its roots can be traced back to the early 16th century. They are the only five original gateways in the city that have survived to this day. The Austras Gate is one of the most visited shrines of Vilnius. It has gained respect and appreciation not only in the immediate vicinity, but also around the world. Copies of Austrian Gate paintings can be found in many churches.
5. Vilnius Cathedral
The Roman Catholic Church was built in the 13th-15th century. The impressive cathedral is dedicated to St. Stanislaus and St. Vladislaus. The cathedral has a peculiar aura-untouched by time, the oldest fresco in Lithuania has been preserved in it, and the most important bishops, nobles and dukes of their day are buried under the cathedral.
6. Vilnius Book Fair
If you come to Vilnius at the end of February, it will be worth going to the largest book fair in the Baltic States. It's an annual festival that brings together all book lovers, including those who read and those who write books. Not only can you buy reading material for wet evenings on the market, but you can also meet authors from near and far countries.
7. Presidents Palace
The Presidential Palace, or rather the Presidential Palace and its park, are also admirable for taking the time to visit it. You will see the changing of guards at the building every day at 6 p.m., but there are also free tours during which the guide helps you to see the President's Office. Nearby is the famous University of Vilnius, which surprises with its ancient aristocracy. The university library is extremely amazing, so you need to apply for it.
8. National Museum of Lithuania
The National Museum of Lithuania is the most fitting place to visit the historical and cultural heritage of Lithuania together. It is also the oldest museum in Lithuania and can be traced back to 1855.
9. St. Anne's Church
The Church of St. Anne enchants with its Gothic touch. This building hasn't changed for more than 500 years. Ancient stories claim that Napoleon Bonaparte himself loved St. Anne 's Church, saying he 'd like to take it with him in his pocket-it 's so beautiful and lovely. The church has become a landmark in Vilnius today.
10. Trakai lake castle
The magnificent red brick castle is a landmark of Lithuania and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The castle is situated about 25 kilometers away from Vilnius, in the small town of Trakai. The red brick building is one of the most visited buildings in Lithuania. It was built in the fifteenth century. Visiting the castle courtyards, grounds and museum exhibits helps you to experience the real medieval atmosphere. The museum consists of several rooms in the walls of the castle, where you can get to know the living conditions of the ancient inhabitants of the castle, as well as the different skills of hunting and battle. In summer, the lake is a perfect place to swim in crystal clear waters. In winter, when the lake is frozen, it is used as a winter sailing area. It should be remembered, however, that there are almost only paying parking lots around the lake.
