You have to wish here.

This is where the long line of people holding hands ended. If you make a wish on this spot, the is is said that it will come true. So, why not give it a try?

It is really nice to know the history behind what is important for the people of a city. In this case, this square represent an event that took place on August 23rd , 1989 when the Baltic Chain took place. It was a peaceful demonstration and this square represents where it started.

Set in the square by the Bell Tower. Spin for luck as you stand on the words. Need to be observant as it is quite small.

This tail is located between the cathedral and the tower. It is believed it has miraculous powers. Step on the tile and make a wish while you turn around clockwise 3 times and your wish will be conceded.

The square is very open allowing for a very nice view of a number of monuments of Vilnius - the palace of the Gran Dukes of Lithuania, the Cathedral and the Bastion that is a Vilnius landmark. Definetely worth the short walk.

Whether or not it's true it's fun to find and twirl around 3 times. It's also fun to see people's reactions; from the locals to tourists. After I found it and twirled a young lady laughed and ran up to take her turn.
