Easy to reach by trolleybus 16 from the train station in the old town, I went there walking the 10km distance because I wanted to explore the suburban districts which surround the tower, which really worth a walk, they offer a view of the true life in town, very poor districts with still really "soviet" shape, but calm and not...

Very nice place to visit to see the city of Vilnius. You can see the whole city beneath and really understand how diverse, big and green this great city is. You can order something to eat or drink and enjoy the view.

The main reason to visit is the view. The food is good, but nothing special. Grab some drinks and appetizers instead and enjoy the revolving sights.

High speed elevator brings you up to observation deck & the restaurant "Milky Way" . It makes a full round in 50 minutes and gives you an option to see the town . You have enough time to eat or just take pictures. Admission - 21 lit for adults.

The views from the top are superb and really provide a wonderful panorama of the city and surrounding countryside. But, there is important modern day history on this site where people demonstrating for freedom were crushed by Soviet tanks. Unfortunately, the exhibit about this event is poor with little explanation of what happened and when. Some money needs ot be... More

Very interesting place, a place that has a special meaning for the independance of Lithuania. Visit the restarunat on top of the tower. Visit the tower in the evening when there are not so many people.

It is the tallest tower in Vilnius, you pay an entrance fee and go directly to the last floor where there is a restaurant. The view of the city is amazing. The restaurant could be better.

Visited the place after many years. The views of Vilnius are even more stunning, it is a really beautiful and green city!! The restaurant badly needs refurbishment, it has not changed for many years. Food, it depends what you go for. Try fish soup, it is not what you think. It is actually a nice broth-like soup with seafood)!

Nice view from tower, nice food, but service in restaurant is quite poor. I advice to take Svyturys Baltas beer, they serve it perfect - with slie of lime.
