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

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. Believe it or not, the "Wish" actually works, at least worked for me several times. :) It is situated right in from of the Cathedral, just try it out, cost you nothing, you never know it can work for you, you just need to think about the wish you really really want and turn...

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

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.
