Got there by Bolt for only 8 euro and was not disappointed. On a weekend you can go up for 15 euro and sit at one of the tables. The tables are on a rotating platform so you can get a 360 view of Vilnius by just sitting and enjoying your food/drinks. It was a quiet and calm atmosphere and you had stunning views of Vilnius' surrounding forests. The food and drinks were way more affordable than I expected. Definitely a cool spot for some drinks as you watch the sunset.

It was a nice evening during the last breath of summer before the gelid Lithuanian autumn season so me and my boyfriend decided to go to the TV Tower to enjoy the view of Vilnius. After paying for our student tickets, a loot cheaper than the normal one, we went up to the 19th floor and prayed not to die in this old Soviet trap. We arrived at the restaurant on top and looked for the infamous waiter with the swastika tattoo, but we found another one who brought us to our table. Let's say that this place is a little bit stuck in time and every two or three minutes of spinning in order to get a glance of the romantic view, the tower would make weird and not scary at all noises. We ordered two desserts and they were pretty standard and the waitress who served us was really nice - we also tipped her.
It is worth it to visit for time travelers but hurry up before it will get renovated - it won't probably happen soon tho.

I used the 2G bus, but check which stop to get off!
Until the doors are open, there are no facilities (toilets)
The adult ticket cost me 8 Euros, which allows one ascent and one descent in the lift - which has to be 'called' by someone with the appropriate access card.
On the 19th floor, is the revolving restaurant and enclosed viewing deck.
Some souvenirs are available at the ticket desk.

Overpriced and oldfashioned place. They charge you 33 euros for family ticket and all you get is unfriendly service, old restaurant and view. Exposition is not worth mentioning. Do not recommend to leave your money there.

Visited the TV tower last April when we traveled to Vilnius. It’s my first time actually to see this place although I’ve been to Vilnius numerous times. There is a fee for this place. The ticket can be purchased at the lower floor. The viewing point is actually the restaurant. The fascinating thing is that it turns giving you a full view of Vilnius. The place looks old and retro but from what I gathered, it is undergoing reconstruction and upgrade. It has started last year 2021 and is expected to finish in 2024. So in the future, I would definitely return to see a modern TV Tower.

We arrived and despite a booking, we were surprised we had to pay for entrance to the restaurant.
Unfortunately it was a cloudy evening so we weren't able to see much. This was made up by the amazing service we received by Markus.
He was so busy but made sure we had everything we needed and took the time to speak to us. He was incredibly friendly and gave great service!
Limited menu choice for vegetarians but the food we did receive was great.
Thanks Markus for great service!

Rotating top tower, you can see it from wherever you are in Vilnius.

Easy access in and out, and you get top notch view of all of vilnius.

Just sit on a table and order your coffee. The tables floor rotates so you can eventually catch any side of Vilnius you want to take photos of.

The tallest building in Lithuania. There is a car park nearby. Access to the tower via an underground corridor. The closed lot rotates around the axis. The windows overlook a beautiful observation deck.

If you're in Vilnius for any length of time, it's worth going to visit the TV tower. It's some 326 meters tall (1070 feet), which is like the Hancock Building in Chicago (Chicago's 2nd tallest landmark).

On the positive side:
The view from the rotating observatory cafe is stunning, especially if you go up around sunset, and stay until it gets dark. It takes 45 minutes to make one full turn around, so choose a comfy booth by the window and settle in. On the internal wall, there's a map with arrows to show you what landmarks you're seeing in the distance. There's really no place else in Vilnius to get such a complete overview of the city.

The TV tower isn't just a tourist attraction, it has historical value. In 1991, during the struggle for independence, Soviet troops stormed the tower, killing 14 of the un-armed civilians who were defending it. Today, inside the base of a tower is a small (free) memorial museum to those brave defenders, and outside there is a small light for each person, placed at the spot where they died (you can really only notice that at night). For this reason, the tower is a symbol of Lithuanian independence.

On the less positive side:
It's a bit expensive from the Lithuanian point of view (all though not for most foreign tourists!). It costs 15 Litas to take the elevator to the cafe, and then obviously if you plan to sit there, you need to order a drink (coffee for example is 2 litas, beer starts from 3 litas).
