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.

The TV tower is a bit of a long ride by trolleybus and you get to see some of the slightly grittier side if vilnius as you drive through the suburbs. Entry fee is a bargain and you get an amazing view of the countryside from the observation deck. Unlike the almost identical tower in Tallinn, the vilnius one has... More

Very interesting history of the rebellion against Soviet Occupation.To know that ordinary people took a stand ,and in some cases paid with their lives ,is very inspiring

Really nice view of the city so it is kind of worth the trip. Easy to get there. The decor was tasteless, the food boring and the service slow. I would still take the trip because of the view.

This attraction is quite expensive if compared to other for free or almost for free attractions of the city, but the sight from above will make you forget the money for the ticket! It would be perfect if it were closer to city centre!

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
