Lithuania

Bizarre, beautiful and bewitching, Lithuania's capital seduces visitors with its astonishing Old Town charm. Its chocolate-box baroque skyline littered with the spires of Orthodox and Catholic churches are intoxicating, decadent and fragile - so much so that Unesco has declared this, Europe's largest baroque old town, a World Heritage site. But there's more to this devilishly attractive capital than meets the eye. There is an underlying oddness that creates its soul.

ゲディミナス城(Gedimino Pilies Bokštas | Gediminas’ Tower of the Upper Castle)(ヴィリニュス, リトアニア)|Vilnius(Katya Sondakさん) - 02

Vilnius was founded on 48m-high Gediminas Hill, topped since the 13th century by Gedimino Tower. Its walls were ruined during the Russian occupation (1655-61), but it was restored in 1930 to house the Upper Castle Museum.

Костёл Святой Анны Vilnius County, Lithuania

Костёл Святой Анны(ヴィリニュス, リトアニア)|Vilnius(Katya Sondakさん)

This national symbol occupies the same spot that was originally used for the worship of Perkūnas, the Lithuanian thunder god; later the Soviets turned the cathedral into a picture gallery. It was reconsecrated in 1989 and mass has been celebrated daily ever since.

Old Town ,Vilnius. Katz rezidencija. Vilnius County, Lithuania

ヴィリニュス旧市街(Old Town ,Vilnius.  Katz rezidencija.)(ヴィリニュス, リトアニア)|Vilnius(Katya Sondakさん)

Following the cathedral’s southern wall brings you to the entrance of what someday will be one of the city’s top attractions: the former Royal Palace of the Grand Dukes.

Day 22012/04/28

Kinas po žvaigždėmis | Open Sky Cinema Vilnius County, Lithuania

Kinas po žvaigždėmis | Open Sky Cinema(ヴィリニュス, リトアニア)|Vilnius(Katya Sondakさん)

Memorabilia from stage and screen is the star of this museum. Of the three arts, the musical history section steals the show – the collection of traditional musical instruments, including a pūslinė (a primitive Baltic string instrument made from animal bladders) and several kanklės (plucked, fretted string instruments), will enchant anyone who has ever picked up an instrument.

  • Loved to be there!

Loft Vilnius County, Lithuania

Loft(ヴィリニュス, リトアニア)|Vilnius(Katya Sondakさん)

This two-level club right in the centre of tourist Vilnius opened in 2010 to rave reviews and hasn’t stopped since. On the ground floor is a bar for getting acquainted; downstairs is the dance floor playing mostly R&B, pop and some electronic.

Vilnius Balcony Vilnius County, Lithuania

Vilnius Balcony(ヴィリニュス, リトアニア)|Vilnius(Katya Sondakさん)

It’s hard to miss the 326m TV tower on the city’s western horizon. This tall needle symbolises Lithuania’s strength of spirit; on 13 January 1991, Soviet special forces killed some 14 people here. Lithuanian TV kept broadcasting until the troops came through the tower door. Wooden crosses commemorate the victims and on 13 January hundreds of people light candles here. At Christmas 6000-odd fairy lights are strung on the tower to create the world’s largest Christmas tree!

  • Loved to be there!

The Castle Hill Vilnius County, Lithuania

The Castle Hill(ヴィリニュス, リトアニア)|Vilnius(Katya Sondakさん)

From the observation deck (190m) all of Vilnius is spread out before you. Steel stomachs can eat while feasting on views at Paukščių takas , a revolving restaurant in the tower.

バルト三国の各首都を中心に連泊で町歩きを楽しみました。素朴な印象なバルト三国ですが、小さい町並みがかわいらしく散策にはもってこいです。のんびりと歩きながら各街のお気に入りの場所を探してみるのもお勧めです。旅全体を通し天気も良く傘をさすことも一度もなかったです。町歩きをしっかり堪能することができました。

Вильнюс - красивая европейская столица некогда могучего Великого Княжества Литовского , а ныне всего лишь маленького государства. Людям ,которым досталась по случайности былая слава народов воздвинувших ту державу чтут и хвалятся своей историей. Огромное количество архитектурных памятников не оставят вас равнодушными)
