This tile might easily be missed if you don't know to look for it. But it's an important part of history and actually means 'miracle'. It marks the southern part of the human chain going through the capitals of the Baltics - Estonia, Riga and Vilnius. If you find it, you should spin yourself around for three times and make... More

This tile at end/beginning of two-million-person human chain to demand Soviets leave Baltics, 8/23/1989, months before Berlin Wall fell, is embedded in the concrete square between Vilnius Cathedral and the Cathedral Bell Tower (the round medieval-appearing tower just outside the main entrance). Depending upon perspective, it is located at either the end (Vilnius?) or the beginning (Tallinn, Estonia?) of the... More

Yes, it is just a tile amid the thousands that cover the ground at Cathedral square. It represents a unique moment in the history of the three Baltic countries. And the fun part is finding it! PS: TripAdvisor asks me if I would recommend this to "shopping fanatics". Well, maybe if they are so crazy about shopping that they would... More

A small and somewhat conspicuous place. You would miss it if you weren't looking but is important for the Baltic states and well worth finding if you're visiting the Cathedral. It's the place where a continuous human chain stretching across the three Baltic states in protest against Soviet occupation occurred. Interesting feature to see but only for a minute or... More

This tile is very small and plain but represents an enormous event which started here or ended here, depending on who you are or where you are from. The square in the Cathedral Square is at the point of one end of the Baltic Way, the human chain of more than 2 million people who locked arms from Tallinn, Estonia... More

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.

Well, at least you can try.

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. It was one of the ends of a human chain formed in 1989 going from Vilnius to Tallinn to protest against the... More
