Solo travel experience

I only spent two days there. At the MO Museum at that time, there was a contemporary art exhibition about Vilnius, which gave me some idea of what artists think about this place. I saw Literacka Street, Zarzecze (an alternative state, which even has its own charming constitution) and as for cafes, I recommend Elska Coffee.

Solo travel experience

I loved Vilnius when I went there at the end of February. You can see a lot on foot, the people are friendly, the cost of living is affordable, the list of advantages is long. I stayed at the Jimmy Jumps hostel and I was very comfortable there.

Solo travel experience

I loved my trip to Vilnius. I really enjoyed visiting Trakai and the castle. It's a taxi ride, but a beautiful one. During my stay in the city, I loved the old town and just walked the streets, watching the graffiti. I visited the Museum of Freedom Fighters and the Museum of Illusions along with the castle.

Local tips

If you want to see beautiful views, go to Gediminas' Tower and the Hill of Three Crosses (Trijų Kryžių Kalnas). Simply walk around the Old Town, visit Užupis, and then you can go to eat at Paupys Market or in other restaurants, such as "Lietuviški patiekalai," if you want to try our cuisine. In the downtown, you can visit beautiful churches. Another day you should visit Trakai. You can get there by bus or train.

About me

I moved to Vilnius on March 8 because I was forced to leave Belarus due to political reasons. I practice urban-buddhism, human rights and solidarity. Travelling breathes new life into me. New friends make me happier. We could both create new stories or just help each other!
