Lithuania, Vilnius Guide (B): Things to Do in Vilnius in a Weekend

Lithuania’s capital is quite a diverse city. Equal parts historic and rowdy, it has something for everyone. If you’re squeezing a visit to Vilnius into one weekend, there’s more than enough sights and fun to keep you pretty busy. These are some of the activities you don’t want to miss.

The best way to see the major sights of Vilnius and decide which sights or neighborhoods you’d like to revisit on your own is to take a walking tour. There are several different walking tours, some in different languages. One of the most popular and highly rated city tours is the Vilnius with Locals walking tour. It’s free and it runs daily from Vilnius Town Hall at 10 am and 12 pm. The tour includes the major sites in Old Town and the independent artist district of Užupis, as well some off-the-beaten-path sights and areas. It lasts 2 to 2.5 hours and is entirely tip-based, so you can pay what you feel the guide deserves for their knowledge.

Cathedral Square is where several of the city’s main streets converge into a wide area where people gather to celebrate events, hold concerts, and parades. This is where a giant colorful Christmas tree blankets the markets in December. The square’s most impressive structure is the Vilnius Cathedral and Bell Tower.
