Tour description

Free Walking Tour: Undiscovered Vilnius  
Have you already seen the main treasures (Cathedral, Gediminas Tower, St Ann's Church, university )of Vilnius old town? Then, this tour is just right for you! It is a great option if you would like to get the full perspective of nowadays Vilnius as we will show you lesser-known areas off the beaten highlights, cobblestones streets, and churches.

During this tour, we will take you to the other side of the river a little further away from the old town where the most contrasting, rural area of Šnipiškės is hiding. This place is a heritage of Soviet urban planning when the new districts were created while some places around were completely untouched. Šnipiškės was somehow forgotten, so here you can still witness how a 19th-century wooden suburb of Vilnius looked like. Surprisingly, this unique area is just meters away from soaring skyscrapers, the most modern part of the city. Join us on this mind-blowing journey to the past and the future at the same time.
The 2-2.5 hour tour covers:

  • Art that lines the riverbank together with perhaps the most scandalous art piece in Lithuanian history
  • First power station in Vilnius
  • Wooden houses of Vilnius - the best -kept secret of the city
  • The modern center of Soviet Vilnius - the signs of the recent history
  • Europe square - the current, hustling business center
  • The panoramic views from the hidden spots  in the modern city
  • Personal family stories
  • All this and much more

Endpoint: Next to Radisson Blue hotel (Konstitucijos avenue 20) or Swedbank terrace that is about 20 min by foot from the meeting point
