Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania. Founded back in the 14th century (was first mentioned in 1323 in the letters of Lithuania’s great ruler Grand Duke Gediminas).
A modern city with 550k citizens. The city has a stunning array of Baroque and Gothic architecture and one of the largest Old Towns in Central and Eastern Europe, which takes up 360 hectares and is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Vilnius University was founded in 1579 and is one of the oldest universities in Eastern Europe. The library holds over 180,000 old manuscripts, rare editions and other publications and holds one of Europe’s biggest collections of maps.

The symbols of Vilnius are the Tower of the Upper Castle on Gediminas Hill, built many centuries ago, and the Cathedral on the city’s main square. The Cathedral is the main sanctuary for Catholics in Lithuania, but it is also a graceful piece of Classical architecture.
