The capital of Lithuania, Vilnius, boasts an impressive medieval quarter--one of the continent's largest and a World Heritage Site with almost 2,000 historical buildings.
Vilniaus staciatikiu Sventosios Dvasios vienuolynas and KGB Museum (Genocido Auku Muziejus) are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get some historical perspective at The Church of St Theresa and Church of St. Casimir. Take a break from Vilnius with a short trip to Trakai Historical National Park in Trakai, about 32 minutes away. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Gediminas Tower, examine the collection at Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania, explore the different monuments and memorials at Vingis Park, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Bernardine Church (Bernardinu Baznycia).
