    I am grateful that I got to visit so that Lithuanians could remember the holocaust as it happened right there. It tells a story that is not included in US history books.

    We climbed up to the top of the tower, one of the bells chimed while we were up there, it was quite loud! Well worth a visit and a climb.

    The bastion itself looks as if it’s ‘sunk’ in what might have once been a moat. The upper edge of the ‘moat’ has a nice trail, with benches. One can sit and relax and enjoy looking at the bastion and defensive wall. Good place to catch a sunset.

    As an aside, the official name of this attraction is Bastion of the Defensive Wall, which is far better known than TA’s Artillery Bastion.

    Very interesting, small museum with the big heart. It has got a special atmosphere of the places of "old kind". It's not interactive nor sophisticated. That's why it's "got the look".

    This building is located on the main pedestrian street Pilies Gatve in the Old Town.

    The Lithuanian Council held its sittings here between 1917 and 1918. The Act of Independence of Lithuania was signed here on the 16th of February in 1918.

    Now it is a museum with a 4 euros entrance fee.

    I had fun looking for and finding this stone. Truly was more impressed with this pagan stone than several other boring statues found ! Would be interested in the means it is maintained with a lit candle ! Hey even the pagans need a place to visit .

    The museum is great, lots to see and more interesting than it appears from the outside. Well worth a visit.

    08 July, 2017.
    I had arrived in Vilnius on 05 July, 2017, and spent the previous
    three days walking all around the Old Town, admiring the old
    churches and cathedrals all around. I was rather intrigued to see
    two tall spires rising into the skies from a distance, yet no
    tourist map of the Old Town or the city really helped me in this
    regard, to identify the place, and its history. On 08 July, I was
    determined to find out more, and after a couple of approaches
    (including one over the grassy mound, leading to a fenced-off area),
    I Was finally able to get to the place I had seen across all my
    roaming across the Old Town. This is an old church which is
    currently closed, but even from the outside, this is a real treat
    for lovers of archaeology, and old structures. The light yellow structure
    had entrance doors on three sides of an impressive entrance, and
    looks striking from the footpath/sidewalk, which has a small
    grassy patch near the entrance.
