TV Tover itself in nothing too special. But it has a restaurant on top which is turning - with splendid views over Vilnius! It makes a full turn in 55 minutes. You can see all Vilnius - and it's certainly worth a visit if you have more then few days in Vilnius. The entrance ticket is 21 litas (appr. 6... More

Great panoramic view of Vilnius and the story of how it was defended by the Latvian people, resulting in the loss of lives was a real eye opener.

Once your on the tower, you get lovely sights of Vilnius. This is the place to be if you want to discover Vilnius. A good thing is that the tower has a platform which moves 360 degrees in about an hour. The visit to the top and the restaurant are quite pricy by Lithuanian standards, but it's still affordable.

I got the chance to visit there about 40 minutes drive from downtown and it was a wonderful experience from the main entrance of the historic place to the restaurant with the panoramic view, by the way, best pinas coladas!

Once you get past the idea of going up in a tall tower built during the Soviet era, with their "great" quality control, all is good. The food was excellent and not that pricey for this kind of location. The view was good. However, it was the historic part of the visit that was the most interesting to me. The... More

Because of the events of January 1991, the TV Tower is a special place in Vilnius. The memorial to those who died here is very moving. The revolving restaurant is very good and the service excellent. Highly recommended.

The tower is easy to reach by Trolley bus from Vilnius train station (take the bus from the stop opposite the station, not the stop right outside the doors). Aside from the usual great view and revolving restaurant often associated with these towers, this one has a special draw for anyone interested in the history of the Baltic states. It... More
