Vilnius — 3 nights

Jerusalem of Lithuania

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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Church of St. Theresa and Church of St. Casimir. Discover out-of-the-way places like Kernave Mounds and Vingis Park. There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of All Saints, take in the spiritual surroundings of Vilniaus staciatikiu Sventosios Dvasios vienuolynas, get engrossed in the history at Gediminas Castle Tower, and squeeze the most out of the city with City Tours.
