“It's no Tallinn, but it's better than Riga”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

Vilnius Old Town is not unlike a lot of old towns in Eastern Europe, but at least it does a good job of blending the old with the cosmopolitan. Some old towns get swallowed alive by the influences of upscale clothing chains, but not vilnius. While those places do exist, there is still a grittiness about Vinius which makes it worth visiting. There is great beer and hearty Lithuanian dishes at places like Snekutis and bambalyne, which should thoroughly be enjoyed. I only stayed 3 full days in Vilnius, which was more than enough time to explore the city, but it left me wanting to see more of Lithuania. Enjoy your visit

“Nice to stroll around, even when the weather is not so nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

Welcoming atmosphere, lots of nice quiet streets. Some areas are not spectacular when it comes to shops, bars and places to visit but strolling around is very nice.

“Historic, lived in and great for families”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

Vilnius is a comfortable size to walk around. It is maybe not as photogenic as some of the artificially restored towns in Europe but is a great place to visit. It feels like a local town with some tourists rather than a place filled with tour groups or stag do's. Very friendly and might I say beautiful people. The park in the east below the castle along the Vilnia stream is a great place to relax.

“Lively old town, much better than Tallinn.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

People are friendly, lots of churches and cafes to appreciate. Well conserved old town area. In comparison to Riga it's comparable but it is far better than Tallinn.

“a small jewel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

Very nice oldtown that can be visited in a couple of hours walking. I suggest you also to go on the side of the cathedral since the viewpoint is nice.
