Opening hours: Tuesday–Saturday 11 a.m.–6 p.m., Sunday 11 a.m.–4 p.m.

We recommend starting your acquaintance with Vilnius at Cathedral Square

— at the heart of the capital and the whole country. Park your car next to the

Museum of Applied Art (Arsenalo g.) or in a paid parking lot near Cathedral

Square (Vrublevskio g.) and take a look around.

The Cathedral and the Cathedral belfry are the highlights of the square. King

Mindaugas built the original Cathedral in 1251 after his conversion to Christianity

in the place of a pagan temple. The Cathedral was later rebuilt several

times. The current classical Cathedral is the design of the famous Lithuanian

architect Laurynas Stuoka-Gucevičius (end of 18th century) but its interior

still reflects earlier architectural periods.


The Cathedral belfry (57 metres high) is a tower of the former defensive

wall rebuilt in 1530. The reddish-brown paving stones in Cathedral Square

mark the contour of the former city wall. The belfry was a starting point of

the Baltic Chain, a 595-kilometre-long human chain that ran between Vilnius,

Riga, and Tallinn and symbolized the solidarity of the Baltic States in their

struggle for independence. People say that a paving stone named “Stebuklas”

(“Miracle”) located between the Cathedral and the belfry makes your secret

wishes come true. All you have to do is turn full-circle clockwise three times.

Give it a try!

The Cathedral leans against the rebuilt Royal Palace of Lithuania (16th century),

which is a representative building of the former Lower Castle. Currently,

the New Arsenal and the Old Arsenal that form a part of the castle house the

National Museum of Lithuania and the Museum of Applied Art, which offer a

huge number of interesting and unique exhibits.

Cast a look upwards and your eyes will fall on the Gediminas Castle Tower. On

the other side of the Vilnia River, a white monument, Three Crosses, stands

high up the hill. The twist in the Vilnia River embraces Sereikiškių Park (formerly,

a garden of the castle, then a garden of a former Bernardine monastery,

and later a botanical garden of Vilnius University).

Cathedral Square is a popular place for various festive events and gatherings,

and the belfry is a favourite meeting place in the city centre.

GEDIMINAS CASTLE

Gediminas Castle Tower

Arsenalo g. 5

Tel: +370 5 261 74 53

www.lnm.lt

Opening hours: May–September, Monday–Sunday 10 a.m.–7 p.m.; October–April, Tuesday–Sunday

10 a.m.–5 p.m.

The castle tower named after Grand Duke Gediminas, the founding father of

the city, is a symbol of the capital. It is said that the Vilnia River flowing at the

foot of the castle hill gave the name to the city of Vilnius.

7


8

It is supposed that Vilnius was founded in 1323 when Grand Duke Gediminas

started sending invitations to craftsmen and merchants from the Western

countries to come and settle in Vilnius. At that time, the core of the city

consisted of three defensive castles — the Lower, the Upper, and the Crooked

and several small villages.

The museum in Gediminas Castle Tower hosts an exhibition that includes reconstructed

models of the 14th–16th century Vilnius castles and some armament

and iconographic material of the old Vilnius. The Lithuanian tricolour

flag, which flutters on the top of the Castle Tower as a symbol of Lithuania’s

independence (declared on February 16, 1918), was first raised on January 1,

1919. Every year at noon on January 1st, which is Lithuanian Flag Day, one

tricolour is solemnly substituted with a new one.

The panorama viewed from the roof of the Castle Tower attracts a lot of visitors.

The baroque Old Town (a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Register since

1994) decorated by dozens of church towers spreads south while the downtown

area lays west. To the right of it, beyond the Neris River, you will see the

skyscrapers of the new business centre. Kalnų Park, the Hill of Three Crosses,

and a chain of picturesque hills stretch out north and east.

THE HILL OF THREE CROSSES

Behind the Museum of Applied Art (Arsenalo g.), cross the bridge over the

Vilnia River and park your car in a paid parking lot at the edge of Kalnų Park.

Then climb the hill on foot.

The Hill of Three Crosses is another spectacular place offering one of the most

beautiful panoramas in Vilnius. Legend has it that seven Franciscan monks

who were sent to spread Christianity in Lithuania were crucified on this hill

by people seeking to preserve paganism after the official conversion of Lithuania

to Christianity in 1387. The Three Crosses designed by Antanas Vivulskis

were erected in 1916. Unfortunately, the Soviets destroyed them in 1950. At

the initiative of the Reform Movement of Lithuania, the monument was reconstructed

in 1989.

If you parked your car on Arsenalo street or at the edge of Kalnų Park, now

head for the bridge, turn left at the intersection, and return to the route on

Vrublevskio street. Then, head for the Church of St Anne. Once you are there

(find the sign marked “Šv. Onos ir Bernardinų bažnyčių ansamblis” (“Ensemble

of the Church of St Anne and the Church of St Bernardino”)), park your car

next to the Church of St Michael.

ENSEMBLE OF THE

CHURCH OF

ST ANNE AND THE

CHURCH OF

ST BERNARDINO

The Church of St Anne

Maironio g. 8

Opening hours:

Monday 4.30 p.m.–6.30 p.m.,

Tuesday–Sunday 10 a.m.–3 p.m., 4.30 p.m.–6.30 p.m.

The Church of St Francis and St Bernardino

Opening hours: Monday–Friday 7 a.m.–7 p.m., Saturday–Sunday 10 a.m.–7 p.m.

The Church of St Michael

A. Volano g. 13 / Šv. Mykolo g. 8

If you follow Maironio Street, the Church of St Michael will be on your right

and the spectacular Ensemble of the Church of St Anne and the Church of St

Francis and St Bernardino (abbr. Bernardine Church) will be on your left. In

a square nearby, you will find a monument to the great Polish romantic poet

Adomas Mickevičius.

The Church of St Anne is distinguished by the rhythmic composition of its vertical

and curved lines that make it a real late gothic masterpiece. This light

and graceful church was built at the end of the 15th century using thirty-three

kinds of bricks. A neo-gothic bell tower, which stands next to the church, was

built much later—in 1873.

Even though the Bernardine Ensemble (a church and monastery) dates back

to the same time as the Church of St Anne, it is totally different. The large,

durable, and solid church might have been used not only as a house of God but

also as a fortress. The solemn but elaborate interior of the church includes a

number of gothic frescos, 11 baroque altars, and many other pieces of art.

Follow Maironio Street and turn left behind the Orthodox Church of the Most

Pure Mother of God. Then cross the bridge over the Vilnia River and you will

find yourself in Užupis, a district popular among people of artistic nature (the

sign marked “Užupis”).

UŽUPIS

Užupio g. > Krivių g.

Užupis is one of the most beautiful old districts of Vilnius. Surrounded by the

Vilnia River, a hilly village started growing in the 16th century. In olden days,

this suburb located behind the city wall was popular among craftsmen and

small merchants. The small Church of St Bartholomew, built in the 18th century

and later destroyed by fire and rebuilt, still recalls those days. The eastern

bank of the Vilnia River embraces the Bernardine Cemetery, the oldest

cemetery in Vilnius, dating back to 1810. Distinctive and artistic gravestones

place it among the most beautiful cemeteries in Europe.

Užupis, which has preserved its many-centuries-old system of streets and

houses, has notably revived sinced Lithuania gained its independence. This

previously shabby district has become a popular place among artists, who

have declared it “the republic of Užupis”. The “republic” even has honorary

citizens: Lithuanian President Valdas Adamkus; his Holiness the Dalai Lama

of Tibet; the godfather of American avant-garde filmmaking, emigrant artist

Jonas Mekas; and some other eminent people.

Užupis is famous for its art galleries, studios, workshops, and cosy cafes, as

well as for its unconventional concerts, exhibitions, festivals, and late-night

poetry readings. A sculpture of the Užupis Patron Angel was unveiled in the

main square of the “republic” a couple of years ago. On the bank of the Vilnia

River, you can find the Užupis Mermaid. The story is told that she can enchant

you and you will deeply fall in love with this bohemian district, often compared

to Montmartre in Paris.

Užupis boasts plenty of wonderful places where you can admire panoramas

of the Vilnius Old Town. Here you can catch sight of Bekešas Hill overlooking

the Hill of Gediminas’ Grave. Turn left from Užupio Street to Krivių Street

and park your car on the street or in a parking lot next to Užupis Gymnasium

(Krivių g. 10). Climb up the hills and enjoy the views.


BEKEŠAS HILL

Bekešas Hill is named

after Kaspar Bekes, a

Hungarian noblemen

and a commander of the

then Polish-Lithuanian

Commonwealth army,

who was buried here in

the 16th century.

Bekes had practiced an Aryan religion and therefore the Catholic Church did

not give permission to have his remains buried in their churchyard.

On this hill, you may admire a breathtaking panorama of the Sereikiškių Park

in the curve of the Vinia River, the Gediminas’ Castle Tower, Cathedral Square,

the Old Town, and downtown. Then, follow a path leading to the Hill of Gediminas’

Grave.

It is said that warriors and grateful townspeople built this hill in commemoration

of Gediminas, the Grand Duke of Lithuania and founder of the capital,

after his death. It is believed that Gediminas was killed in Veliuona during a

battle in which the crusaders first used firearms. His remains were burnt and

buried under this barrow.

On your way down Užupio Street, stop beside “Tores” Restaurant and enjoy

another spectacular panorama. You may park your car in the parking lot in

front of the restaurant.

Push the gates open and step into the yard of Tores Restaurant (Užupio g. 40).

The restaurant terrace opens on one of the most beautiful panoramas over the

Šventaragis Valley and a gorgeous view of the Old Town.

The swift Vilnia River flows at the bottom of a high slope where its curve embraces

the popular Sereikiškių Park, one of the oldest green spaces in Vilnius.

Gediminas’ Hill and the Castle Tower are now in front of you while a circle

of hills (the Hill of Three Crosses, the Hill of Gediminas’ Grave, Bekešas Hill,

Stalas (Engl. table) Hill) surrounding the Šventaragio Valley is on your right.

The gorgeous Ensemble of the Church of St Anne and the Church of St Francis

and St Bernardino rests on your left and the soaring towers of the Church of St

Johns (Vilnius University) as well as the Cathedral belfry may be seen further,

beyond the Old Town. The panorama reveals its full beauty when the sun is

setting or in a heavy snowfall in winter.

Drive down the main street, then cross the bridge and the border of the

Užupis “republic”. Then turn left and Maironio Street will lead you to the

Tymo Quarter, a district earlier popular for craftsmen’s workshops (the “Tymo

kvartalas”(“Tymo Quarter”) sign). Park your car in the spacious free parking

lot in Maironio Street.

TYMO QUARTER

In the Middle Ages, this craftsmen’s village was located outside of Vilnius, behind

the eastern city wall. A lot of leather processing workshops were opened

here in the 14th–19th century and therefore the village got the name “Tymo”

which in Lithuanian means “well processed leather”.

Nowadays, the Tymo Quarter is highly influenced by the artistic spirit of neighbouring

Užupis. It houses a “handicraft village”, a number of craftsmen’s

workshops, and artists’ studios. Currently, the quarter features nearly fifty

different shops that sell jewellery, textiles, and ceramics, as well as a huge

variety of articles from leather, amber, and iron. You will definitely find some

accessory or souvenir you like. Moreover, every Sunday people gather here to

attend a local book fair where books are traded.


Leave your car parked in the Tymo Quarter and visit the lower part of Užupis,

the bastion located on the corner of Subačiaus Street and Bokšto Street, and

the nearby scenic viewpoint. Among the colourful houses, you will find the

stairs leading to Bokšto Street through Kūdrų Street. Turn left and walk along

the wall of red bricks until you reach the tower.

THE BASTION OF VILNIUS

DEFENCE WALL

Bokšto g. 20/18

Tel: +370 5 261 21 49

www.lnm.lt

Opening hours: May–September, Tuesday–Saturday 10 a.m.–5 p.m., Sunday 10 a.m.–3 p.m.;

October–April, Tuesday–Saturday 10 a.m.–5 p.m.

The bastion was built as an artillery fortification in the 17th century. It constituted

a part of the city defence wall that had been erected a century earlier

to protect the Old Town.

The bastion consists of a tower rising from the city wall, a huge underground

gun port (length 110 m, width 4 m, height 5 m), and a 48-metre-long tunnel

connecting them (length 48 m, width 2.8 m, height 3.5 m). Currently, the underground

gun foundry houses an exhibition of cannons and medieval armour

from the oldest times to the late 18th century.

A green beside the bastion is a popular place for romantic dates. On your

way there, you will be able to admire another gorgeous panorama of the Old

Town.

13


PANORAMIC VIEW FROM

SUBAČIAUS STREET

The uppermost part of Subačiaus Street provides

a superb view of the Old Town. It must

be the most breathtaking panorama of the

capital since here you can see the majority

of churches and other places of worship in

Vilnius.

Maironio g. > – Subačiaus g. / Maironio g. Subačiaus g. > Žiupronių g. > M. Daukšos g. > Rasų g. > – Rasų g.

14

The first thing that will strike your eye in this

Old Town panorama is the graceful Missionary

Church of the Assumption and the baroque

buildings surrounding it. On their right, you

will surely notice the crown of the Church of St Casimir. This church, dedicated

to the Patron Saint of Lithuania, is the first baroque church in Vilnius

(17th century). Further to the right, you will spot the Church of the Holy

Mother of God which is the only one-tower late baroque church in Lithuania.

Yet further in the distance are the gold-plated domes of the Russian Orthodox

Church of St Michael (16th –19th century) and the Orthodox Church of St.

Parasceve (or Piatnickaya Church) (14th–19th century). In the direction of the

Cathedral, your eyes will catch the 63-metre-high bell tower of the white St

Johns Church of Vilnius University. In the distance, between the Old Town and

the Gediminas’ Castle Tower, the new Vilnius downtown stretches on the right

bank of the Neris River.

Take the stairs to go back to the parking lot where you left your car. Then

return to the route and stop on the corner of Subačiaus Street and Maironio

Street to admire another breathtaking panorama.

OBSERVATION

PLATFORM AT THE INTERSECTION OF

SUBAČIAUS AND MAIRONIO STREETS

Subačiaus Street was one of the oldest roads in Vilnius that led to distant

corners of Lithuania through the city wall (Subačiaus Gate). On the corner of

Subačiaus Street and Maironio Street, you will find a panoramic viewpoint.


Take a look around! Here you can enjoy the most beautiful panorama of Užupis.

Colourful houses embrace the elegant Church of St Bartholomew, which now

belongs to the community of Belarusian Catholics in Vilnius. Beside the main

bridge to Užupis stands the white Russian Orthodox Church of the Holy Mother

of God, while behind it you may once again admire the Vilnius hills. On your

right, you may see Old Town houses that were once separated from the Tymo

Village by a medieval defensive wall. Located in the area down the slope is

cosy Kūdrų Park. An information stand set up at the scenic viewpoint for your

convenience will help you spot the churches of the Old Town.

To continue your journey, drive up Subačiaus Hill, make a left at the Missionary

Church of the Assumption, and then make another left at the end of the

street. Rasų Street will lead you to the most beautiful cemetery in town (the

“Rasų kapinės” („Rasų Cemetery“) sign). You may park your car on Rasų Street

beside the cemetery.

RASŲ CEMETERY

Rasų g. > Dun ojaus g. > Liepkalnio g. > Minsko pl. > – Liepkalnis Hill

Established at the beginning of the 19th century, Rasų Cemetery is one

of the oldest and the most beautiful cemeteries in Vilnius. It is the final

resting place for Lithuania’s social elite. Here rests Mikalojus Konstantinas

Čiurlionis, the famous Lithuanian painter; Balys Sruoga, a Lithuanian

writer who survived the hell of a German concentration camp; Jonas

Basanavičius, the father of the country and a signatory of the Act of Independence

of Lithuania (1918); and many other artists, scientists, and

other figures of note. A popular place of interest here is the burial place

of the heart of Józef Piłsudski.

Gravestones resembling architectural structures spread all over the burial

ground among the old trees swaying on the rolling hills and valleys of

the cemetery. Distinctive gravestones, the columbarium of the Vileišiai

family, a neo-Gothic church, and a road dividing the old and the new

cemetery create a mystic feeling of a city of the dead. It is said that this

cemetery was once a place for pagan festivals and sacrificial rituals.

Drive a little further along the route and then turn onto Minsko Road. On

your left, you will notice Liepkalnis Hill and its ski slope (the “Liepkalnio

kalnas” (“Liepkalnis Hill”) sign). Turn around in Minsko Road and admire

the panorama.

Opening hours: Monday–Wednesday 4 p.m.–8.30 p.m., Thursday–Friday 3 p.m.–8.30 p.m., Saturday–Sunday

9 a.m.–8.30 p.m.

At the intersection of Minsko Road and Žirnių Street in Liepkalnis, you will find

Laimis Hill, the highest point in Vilnius (235.12 m). This hill was named after

the great skiing enthusiast Laimis Janutėnas. He and other ski lovers raised

this hill 16 metres.

The top of this hill provides a stunning panorama where city meets nature. Pavilniai

Regional Park, famous for its historical heritage and unique landscape

of the Vilnia River valley, lays to the north-east. You will definitely be captivated

by its unique hills created by water erosion and springs that eventually

join to form the fast-flowing Kaukysa Stream. The unique, expressive contours

of Pavilniai Regional Park resemble of a giant fan.

Then look in the opposite direction to see a stunning harmony of the old and

the new Vilnius with the historical Old Town and the Hill of Three Crosses on

the one side and the new downtown of Vilnius with skyscrapers and residential

quarters separated by green areas on the other.

Return to Minsko Road and turn again at the intersection. On your way back,

turn left on Gurių Street and follow it to admire the woody landscape of

Vilnius’ hills and valleys on your left. Find the sign “Markučių dvaro sodyba“

(“Markučiai Manor House”) and park your car in the parking lot beside the

bus stop.

Subačiaus g. 124

Tel: +370 5 260 00 80

www.vilniausmuziejai.lt

Opening hours: Wednesday–Sunday 10 a.m.–5 p.m.

In the Middle Ages, the picturesque suburb of Markučiai was a summer resort

for dukes of the Great Duchy of Lithuania. Russian railway engineer Aleksej

Melnikov bought a local estate in 1867 and presented it as his daughter Varvara’s

dowry for her first marriage. Later, she married for a second time to

Grigory Pushkin, the younger son of the famous Russian poet Aleksandr Pushkin.

The newlywed settled in Markučiai in 1899 and started a recreational

business that soon led to a village being established around the estate.

After her husband’s death, the strongest wish and concern of Varvara Pushkina

was to preserve the relics of poet Alexandr Pushkin. In her will, she left the

main estate building to the state and directed that it must be turned into a

museum to enshrine the memory of the poet.

Established in 1940, the museum hosts several exhibitions dedicated to the

great Russian poet. The museum provides the opportunity to watch films and

listen to music inspired by his works. Six rooms still preserve their original

ornate interior of that time.

Currently, the estate consists of the main building that houses the museum,

the cemetery of the Pushkin family, St Varvara Chapel, a bust of Alexandr

Pushkin unveiled in 1955, and a cosy park. The yard of the museum opens onto

a romantic panorama of the Vilnia River and Kaukysa Stream.

If you want to visit Belmontas Stud Farm and the nearby river dam, follow

Subačiaus Street and turn right at a viaduct. Drive a little further along Zarasų

Street and turn right at the Olandų–Polocko traffic circle when you see the

signs “Belmonto žirgynas” (“Belmontas Stud Farm”) and “Belmonto užtvanka”

(“Belmontas River Dam”).

Opening hours: Monday–Sunday noon–10 p.m.

Belmonto g. > S. Batoro g. > – Pūčkoriai Escarpment

In the 19th century, Frenchman Carol de Vim built a brick watermill with an

adjoining house and other buildings for manufacturing and storage on the

right bank of the Vilnia River. Subsequent owners of the mill refined the water

supply system by building a concrete river dam, flumes for incoming and


outgoing water, three wooden bridges over them, and a water control system.

Called French Mill after the nationality of its founder, the mill operated until

the end of the 20th century.

Over the years, the Vilnia River undermined the sloping river dam and turned

into a small waterfall. This place is therefore often called the Belmontas

Waterfalls.

Currently, this territory belongs to the Belmontas Recreation and Entertainment

Centre. Its owners have rebuilt the old mill and the other buildings of

the complex.

Get back on the route and follow Belmonto Street to its end. Do not drive

into the Olandų-Polocko traffic circle but turn right. S. Batoro Street will lead

you to Pūčkoriai Escarpment, an impressive geological feature (the “Pūčkorių

atodanga” (“Pūčkoriai Escarpment”) sign).

PŪČKORIAI ESCARPMENT

S. Batoro g. > – Pūčkoriai Hill Fort

Pūčkoriai Escarpment is an open scarp formed by the fast-flowing Vilnia River

(its height exceeds 65 metres and its width reaches 260 metres). It was declared

protected in 1974. Experts who have analysed the layers of the escarpment

have found traces of the Mesozoic era famous for dinosaurs and some

rocks with fossil remains of ancient fauna from the Jurassic Period.

The top of the escarpment gives one of the most beautiful views of the suburbs

of Vilnius. The Vilnia River winds its way through a deep valley while the

buildings and ponds of a former estate and an old cannon foundry rest beyond

it. Further in the distance, you may see the river dam and the territory of the

former French water mill with many little bridges here and there.

If you look up at the steep Pūčkoriai Escarpment from the bottom of the valley,

it appears to be a beautiful sight by itself. The exposure uncovers its beauty in

many different places along the conveniently set Pavilniai Park walkway that

Pūčkoriai Hill Fort is an archaeological object of national importance. Articles

of flint and fragments of ceramics found beside the hill fort tell of a stone-age

settlement once located nearby. Nowadays, Lithuania may boast of around

800 mounds but Pūčkoriai Hill Fort is known to have been settled from the

very first centuries of our era till the 13th–14th century.

On the top of the steep 11–19 metre hill, the shape of which resembles a truncated

cone, you may still find some marks of hill fort. The mound is overgrown

with trees but from the top of it you still can see the Vilnia River flowing at

the foot of the hill and the well-kept territory of Belmontas Recreation and

Entertainment Centre.

The hill fort is a starting point of the Pavilniai Park walkway. Here you may

choose one of several routes. If you follow the first route, you will pass the

sundial, the Pūčkoriai Estate, a cannon foundry dating back to the 18th–19th

century, and old ponds. Alternatively, you may first turn at the Belmontas

river dam and then admire the Pūčkoriai Escarpment on your way back along

the first route. Information stands and signs set up for your convenience will

not let you deviate from the route.

In S. Batoro Street, find the “Rokantiškių piliavietė” (“Rokantiškės Castle

Site”) sign behind the railway bridge and turn right.

ROKANTIŠKĖS

CASTLE SITE

According to legends, a

40-metre-high castle used to

stand on Rokantiškės Castle

Hill. It might have been built

by Duke Alšys in the 11th–

Plytinės g. >

Vilnius University Botanical Garden


12th century. His descendent Sofija Alšėniškė (15th century) was a founder of

the royal Jogailaičių dynasty. Surrounded by steep slopes and overhanging the

Vilnia Valley, the castle devolved to the Pacai family of nobles and was rebuilt

into a beautiful Renaissance palace. Unfortunately, it was destroyed during

the attack of the Moscow army in 1656. Only the remains of the ruins testify to

the great palace. Barrows surrounding the former castle safeguard a number

of graves dating back to the 6th–12th century. Not only people but also horses,

armament, jewellery, etc. are found buried here.

The castle hill gives a wonderful view of the Vilnia Valley. The Kučkuriškės

Paper Mill established in the 19th century (technical monument), the old river

dam, the ponds, and the Naujoji Vilnia settlement founded in the 19th century

after the construction of the Vilnius to St Petersburg railway line may be

seen on one side, while the sleep banks of the Vilnia River and a hilly area

overgrown with fir trees lay on the other.

Drive further along S. Batoro Street and turn left at the traffic light to get to

Dūmų Street. Follow the main road and at the first intersection turn left to

Plytinės Street, where you will find a wonderful botanical garden (the sign

reading “VU botanikos sodas” (“VU Botanical Garden”)).

Opening hours: May 2–October 31, Monday–Thursday 9 a.m.–5 p.m.,

Friday 9 a.m.–4 p.m., Saturday–Sunday 10 a.m.–7 p.m.

Established in 1974, one of the botanical gardens of Vilnius University is located

on the outskirts of Vilnius, in Kairėnai. A rich variety of different plants

(approx. 9000 different species) flourishes in this unique place. The territory

of the botanical garden, which occupies nearly 200 hectares, boasts a

fascinating landscape with rolling hills, valleys, ponds, and old trees. The

reconstructed buildings of the Kairėnai Estate and its restored English park

are a jewel in the crown of the botanical garden and must definitely be visited.

Once you are there, do not pass by the garden of rhododendrons, the

collection of roses, and other collections. You may not only walk about in the

garden but also ride a horse, a horse-drawn carriage, or a sleigh in winter.

These services, however, must be ordered in advance.

21


The other botanical garden is in Vingio Park (since 1919). Currently, botanists

grow around 4000 different plant species and varieties in a vast 7.5 hectare

territory while another 900 are maintained in greenhouses. The garden is a

riot of colour in spring with tulips and hyacinths, a spree of lilies in summer,

and a parade of meadow saffrons and crocuses in autumn.

The very first botanical garden of Vilnius University was founded back in 1781

in the back yard of one Old Town house (Pilies g. 22) by botany Professor J.

E. Giliber. Later, the botanical garden was moved to Sereikiškių Park (to the

garden of the Bernardine Monastery) and flourished until the university was

closed. When the Czarist Russian army shut down Vilnius University, the botanical

garden was also closed and neglected.

On your way to Vilnius Kalvarijos, you will see a lot of young people walking

down Saulėtekis Avenue. This part of the city hosts a student campus with

faculty buildings, dormitories, and gyms of two universities.

Follow the sign “Vaizdingas maršrutas” (“Picturesque Route”) until you reach

Kalvarijų Street. When there, turn right to Pušyno Street, which will lead you

to the first Station of the Cross (Kalvarijos). At the first station, you will find

an information stand with the full scheme of the Station of the Cross. The map

of the picturesque route and some other useful information may be found at

another stand.

KALVARIJOS STATIONS OF THE CROSS

Vilnius Kalvarijos was established in the 17th century at the initiative of Vilnius

Bishop Jurgis Belazaras in thanksgiving to God for the liberation of the

country from the Czarist Russian army.

Pušyno kelias > Kalvarijų g. > Jeruzalės g. > Santariškių traff c circle > Žaliųjų ežerų g. > – Verkiai Manor House

22

This way of the cross faithfully resembles the topography of Jerusalem at the

time of Jesus. The full length of the way (7 km) and the distances between

the stations in steps and even in feet resemble those in the Holy Land. The

composition of the way of the cross includes twenty chapels marking the stations,

a bridge over the Cedronas (Baltupys) River, a stone gate, and seven

wooden gates. Three stations are located in the Church of the Discovery of

the Holy Cross.


Almost all the stations of this unique baroque ensemble were destroyed at the

order of the Soviet authorities but later rebuilt in 2002. This way of the cross

that reconstructs biblical events in the beautiful landscape of Verkiai Regional

Park is considered one of the great Calvaries of Europe.

In the old days, crowds of believers used to come to this way of the cross on

Whit Sunday. The festival used to begin at the Gate of Dawn and last for three

days. Nowadays, the first day is intended for priests and monks, the second

is the day for children and young people, and the third (Sunday) is Whit Sunday.

Follow Pušyno Street to get back to Kalvarijų Street. Then turn right and

continue your journey. Take the first right off the Santariškių traffic circle and

follow Žaliųjų ežerų Street until you reach the Verkių Manor House (the sign

marked “Verkių dvaro sodyba” (“Verkiai Manor House”)).

Located on the territory of Verkiai Regional Park, Verkiai Manor House (36

hectares) is one of the most beautiful and the most valued classical ensembles

in Lithuania. The ensemble was designed in the second half of the 18th century

by two Lithuanian architects, Martynas Knafkusas and Laurynas Stuoka-

Gucevičius.

In the 14th century, Verkiai was the possession of the grand dukes of Lithuania.

After the Christianization of Lithuania in 1387, King Jogaila granted the

estate to the bishops of Vilnius, who owned Verkiai for more than 400 years.

The ensemble took its classical form at the initiative of Ignas Jokūbas Masalskis,

a bishop who administered the estate at that time.

The palace and two other buildings once meant for servants now comprise the

centre of the remaining Verkiai Manor House ensemble. Besides those buildings,

the manor house also encompasses a flourmill, a water pumping station,

a post office, upper and the lower landscape parks, and a number of ponds.

The upper park located on a steep bank of the Neris River yields a wide panorama

of the river valley with the Saulėtekis student campus and the multi-

23

storeyed buildings of the districts of Antakalnis and Žirmūnai further in the

distance. Discover the beauty of the park all year round, especially in spring

and autumn when the ground gets decorated with fallen leaves and blue violets.

Turn back onto Žaliųjų ežerų Street and follow it until you reach the traffic

circle. In the circle, turn onto Molėtų Road and follow it for a while. Then

take a left turn to Baltupio Street and follow it until you see the “Jeruzalės

skulptūrų sodas” (“Jeruzalė Sculpture Garden”) sign. If you follow subsequent

signs (turn left on Mokyklos Street, take another left at Pievų Street, and then

yet another left on Lobio Street), you will arrive at a park of Lithuanian contemporary

sculpture.

Opening hours: May–October Thursday–Saturday noon–6 p.m.

For more that 25 years, sculptor Vladas Vildžiūnas has

been designing and keeping a sculpture park on his property.

It is the only Lithuanian modern sculpture park in

Vilnius. Currently, the park is home to more than 40

sculptures created by Vladas Vildžiūnas, Teodoras Kazimieras

Valaitis, Vladas Urbanavičius, and other artists.

The gallery hosts a highly valuable collection of artistic

works created by 20th century Lithuanian painters,

graphic artists, and sculptors of old and new generations.

Gathered for more than 40 years, this collection

of Lithuanian modern visual art now exhibited in the

sculpture park and the gallery is considered a “gold

mine of Lithuanian art”.

Centre, occupying 112,000 square metres and housing more than 200 shops,

is one of the biggest shopping centres in Lithuania. You will definitely find

something for yourself, your family, and your friends.

Akropolis is the capital of entertainment. Here you will find cinemas, a skating-rink,

a bowling alley, billiards tables, several playrooms for kids, and much

more. A huge variety of cafes and restaurants offers cuisines from different

parts of the world.

Akropolis is located on a hill, the eastern side of which provides a beautiful

chain of hills (1160 metre long) made of gravel, sand, and boulders. Esker is

a rather rare geological formation declared a natural monument of Lithuania

in 1964.

Šeškinė Esker is an island in a hectic city. One of the hills located near Akropolis

gives a wonderful panorama of modern Vilnius and the hilly Old Town

located on the other side of the Neris River. It is a popular place for walks and

jogging in summer and a great place for skiing in winter.

Drive out of the Akropolis parking lot and make a left turn at the intersection.

Follow the signs to Laisvės Avenue. Then drive straight ahead until you

find the “TV bokštas” (“TV Tower”) sign. Go up the viaduct and follow Sausio

13-osios Street until you reach the TV Tower.

Opening hours: Monday–Sunday 10 a.m.–9 p.m.

Located in Karoliniškės, the TV Tower is the highest building in Lithuania

(326.5 metres high). If you are lucky enough to have good weather when you

visit Paukščių Takas, the TV Tower café that is located 165 metres above the

ground, you will be able to see the suburbs of Vilnius stretching dozens of kilometres

away from it. Since the platform of the café constantly turns, you will

have an opportunity to see the entire city in 45 minutes (the platform turns

360° in this time) while sitting at your table.

The ground floor of the TV Tower hosts an exhibition dedicated to the events

of January 13, 1991 when the unarmed people who were protecting the TV

Tower resisted Soviet tanks. A bronze memorial entitled Aukojimas (Engl. sacrifice)

and dedicated to the fighters for independence was unveiled in 2005,

and the streets surrounding the TV Tower carry the names of those people.

Since 2000, the TV Tower is decorated every year with Christmas lights for the

holiday season and becomes one of the tallest Christmas trees in the world.

Return to Laisvės Avenue. If you want to admire another panorama of Vilnius

located a little off the route, follow the route that takes you to the

Karoliniškės Landscape Reserve. To get there, take Architektų Street, then

Laisvės pr.


turn left, and drive straight until you see a sculpture resembling a horse and

entitled Rytas (Engl. morning) by Gediminas Karalius (next to a shopping centre).

Then leave the shopping centre on your left, go to the right hand side,

and follow the street leading through the blocks of flats until it ends. Park

your car on the street and follow a forest path that will take you to Plikakalnis

escarpment with a breathtaking view of Vilnius.

ESCARPMENT

Karoliniškės Landscape Reserve, one of the oldest (since 1964) preserved natural

territories in Vilnius, extends to the east from the TV Tower. It occupies a

101-hectare territory from Žvėrynas to Lazdynai with washed out ravines and

springs streaming down the banks of the Neris River.

The most attractive part of the reserve is the sharp slope of Plikakalnis Escarpment

(height 58 m, length 650 m) with a beautiful panorama of the quiet

valley of the Neris River. The greenness of Vingio Park, located on the other

side of the river, embraces the white arc of a stage, the contours of a stadium,

and a Vilnius University botanical garden. Two islands dividing the river and

the Karoliniškės trench may be seen on the left and the Litexpo exhibition

centre attracts the eye on the right.

TAURAS HILL

The name of Tauras Hill is

derived from the surname

of Juozapas Bouffalo (Lith.

tauras), the former holder

of this land. The majority

of streets around the hill

carry the names of famous

Lithuanian writers.

The wonderful scenery of Vilnius unfolds from the top of Tauras Hill, with the

city of the 19th–20th century on this side of the Neris River and the skyscrapers

of the new city centre on the other.

Tauras Hill is a popular place among citizens, especially young people. Schoolleavers

often come here to meet the sunrise after their graduation party and

romantic people climb the hill to admire sunsets and the city by night. In

winter time, people come here with snowboards and sleds.

Europos Square and the 126-metre-high, 33-storey skyscraper Europa, a symbol

of the modern and rapidly growing Vilnius, were officially opened on May

1, 2004, the day of Lithuania’s accession to the EU.

Once the shopping centre and other offices surrounding Europos Square started

business, the square turned into a popular place to meet and unwind. A

splashing fountain and multifunctional elements offering a place to sit down

create the feeling of a quiet and spacious oasis.

This square is often chosen for various entertaining and cultural events, festive

gatherings, art actions, agitation campaigns, mass sporting competitions,

and a starting point for hikes.

The Museum of Energy is located in the premises of the first power plant in

Vilnius (1903–1998). The museum takes pride in its authentic power plant

equipment and steam turbines and generators standing in their original places.

Apart from them, the exhibition also includes other technical heritage:

former lighting equipment, domestic electrical appliances, and a model of the

Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant, which is going to be closed down in 2009.

Visitors may enter a boiler room, take a look at water pumps and twisty mazes

of pipes, and go downstairs to a basement built at the river level. All these

premises give a feeling of a mysterious underground maze.

The Museum of Energy, with a sculpture named Elektra (Engl. electricity) on

top of it, is located downtown, next to the Karaliaus Mindaugo Bridge. If you

cross this bridge, you will return to Cathedral Square and the Old Town.

OBJECTS OFF THE ROUTE

If you would like to visit a couple more interesting places that are not a

part of the route, we recommend visiting Vingio Park, Tuputiškių Serpentine,

the Centre for Young Nature Lovers, Antakalnis Catacombs, and the Colourful

Springs.

Vingis Park

Located in a bend of the Neris River and occupying 162

hectares of land, Vingio Park is a popular place for walks,

bicycle riding, or roller skating. The stage standing in the

centre of the park often hosts concerts, shows, and festivals.

The park also includes a botanical garden and a stadium.

The eastern part of the park between M. K. Čiurlionio

Street and the Neris River includes a cemetery for World

War I soldiers.

Tuputiškės Serpentine

This serpentine road in Pavilnys is the only one in Lithuania.

It extends a little less than 1 kilometre and may look

funny to people who are used to driving such roads. Untrained

drivers, however, may find the 120–150 metre long

paved segment truly scary.

Young Naturalists’ Centre

If you visit Pavilnys, you should also make a visit to the

garden of the Centre for Young Nature Lovers (30 hectares)

located on the breathtaking slopes of the Vilnia River. You

will not only find a huge variety of rare plants characteristic

of Lithuania and other countries, but also a small zoo.

Antakalnis Catacombs

The interesting Antakalnis Catacombs — five bunkers — is

located at the end of Šilo Street. A cobblestoned road will

lead you there. Currently, almost all of these bunkers are

the realm of bats. A 7-kilometre-long path starting at the

catacombs leads through the picturesque Saulės Valley and

the Šveicarijos Ravines.

Colourful Springs

Under the Valakupių Bridge, on the right side of the Neris

River, you will find the Colourful Springs. The water

of these springs contains a lot of minerals that make it

coloured.

If during your stay in Vilnius or its suburbs you came up with an object that you found interesting

or you were captivated by a panorama that is not included in the route, let us know about it.
