Fun tradition.

This square stone is between the cathedral and the bell tower. It is maybe 20" square, so you have to look, but it stands out from the plain paving stones around it. The... read more

A little miracle tile right in the middle of Cathedral Square, all you need to do is step on it, make a wish and turn around 3 times. And then the spirits of Vilnius will make your wish come true. A tiny little curiosity for everyone. It's quite charming to see people lined up to make their wishes and it... More

I always love superstitious beliefs regardless where it is in the world. just like making a wish when you cross the bridge for the first time in Riga. so when my friend told me about this wishing spot, I had to make a wish here. What you do is you step on it, turn around 3 times and make your... More

it worked for me! this small tile has a very positive energy around it! no wonder if in 1989, from this small tile started a human chain formed of about 2 million protesting Lithuanians, Latvians and Estonians that stretched all the way to Tallinn. the protest was a peaceful one, as the energy left behind can still be felt today!...

One of the pavement tiles in the Cathedral Square (between the Cathedral and the belfry) is decorated with the word “stebuklas” (“miracle”) in coloured letters by G. Umbrasas). Should you want to make a wish come true then you must stand on the tile, make your wish and turn round 360 degrees.

If you believe- every plate in the pavement will be a miracle. Depending on the dream and mood. But small nice things can make a day better, and this plate in Cathedral square makes it for a lot of travellers and locals. So it works! :)

This square stone is between the cathedral and the bell tower. It is maybe 20" square, so you have to look, but it stands out from the plain paving stones around it. The tradition is to make a wish, then turn around clockwise three times on the marked stone, and your wish will come true. I hope so!!

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.
