About Vilnius

Vilnius is an outstanding example of a medieval city that profoundly influenced architectural and cultural developments in Eastern Europe over several centuries. Legend has it that the city was founded after Grand Duke Gediminas had a dream on a hunting trip. In his dream, Gediminas saw a colossal iron wolf standing on a hill, howling as if hundreds of wolves were trapped inside it. When the Grand Duke consulted the court magician Lizdeika, he was told that the wolf symbolized a significant capital that would one day stand on the top of that hill. By 1323, Gediminas was already sending letters to European cities inviting merchants and craftspeople to visit the city.

This year, Vilnius turned 700 years old. The magical Old Town of Vilnius has many secrets and a long history, with its cobblestone streets leading you on a romantic walk through a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is home to many talented contemporary artists, allowing visitors to attend plays or films by world-famous Lithuanian directors, listen to the best opera singers in the world, or visit acclaimed exhibitions. Dozens of free events occur daily, and a theatre, film, dance, or culture festival takes place every month. At night, Vilnius transforms into a place where artistic expression takes on new forms as part of the city’s thriving social scene.
