One of the biggest preserved historic centre in Europe, Vilnius Satre Mesti has the typical features of an enchanting town: hills, parks a river, lots of churches, a mix of old buildings and imposing new ones. But its the atmosphere that make it special

Vilnius is a relaxed and historic city. Walking around this quiet city, you'd be forgiven for not realizing you were in the capital city of a country. Although Lithuania is small today, it used to have a great empire. It was once the political center of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania from the 13th to the end of the 18th century. Then is had a profound influence on the cultural and architectural development of much of eastern Europe. Today its Historic Center reveals buildings with Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Classical styles. Add to that budget friendly accommodation and traditional Lithuanian cuisine for the traveler and you've got a ideal destination.

Beautiful old town. I went there when I was studying abroad in Moscow, and it was such a relief from the drudgery of late winter.

The Old Town portion of Vilnius was probably what I enjoyed the most (not being a fan of Vilnius in general). You can feel the history and the buildings are very old. There are a lot of amber shops, cafe's and traditional Lithuanian restaurants. Of course, this area has loads of tourists but to me, it's as good as it gets.

I record valgono quel che valgono. Tuttavia, il centro storico di Vilnius vanta di essere il più esteso di tutto l'Est Europa: ci si può passeggiare per ore, tra le grandi piazze e i vicoletti che si aprono ai lati delle vie Pilies, Didžioji e Aušros Vartu – le principali del centro. L'area si è sviluppata tra il Quattrocento e il Cinquecento, e la maggior parte dei monumenti storici che vorrete visitare si trova qui: ideale dunque risiedere in questa zona, se siete in città per qualche giorno. Ristoranti e locali non mancano.
