I was told to look around the cathedral but the precise location was a secret so, I walked around staring at the floor. It's not hard to find and it represents such a powerful truth, if we stay together and work together we can achieve things that we consider to be miracles. Also you are suppose to jump and spin...

Read up on this here; can't miss it. Between the cathedral and watch tower, in what I like to call the center of Vilnius, is the Stebuklas plate. A somber reminder of Vilnius, Talinn, and Riga held a 2 million man "chain link" that ended in Talinn. A stand of solidarity against the Soviet machine.

Located just between the tower and the cathedral, it's a nice sympolic value, but otherwise not impressing. As you'll certainly be there around, it's worth to pay attention to it.

Great place to stand and think about recent history. Starting point for human chain that stretched to Tallinn as a protest. Make a wish and turn around.

Little brick near Cathedra. You must stay on it, turn around 3 times and imagine your greates wish. It is believed after this "procedure" it will come true. Very nice fairy-tale :) My wish didn't come true yet. Let's see :)

Find it near the Cathedral. Stebuklas translates as 'miracle' so if you believe....
