Vilnius is the capital of Lithuania, the largest of the three Baltic states in Eastern Europe. A city of gypsies, bohemian types & general misfits, there’s a definite & bizarre anything goes mentality wafting through the air at any given time. One guidebook claims the city to be a “bastion of eccentricity and spirit”. Indeed. Just like it’s Baltic neighbours to the north (Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, & Riga, the capital of Latvia), Vilnius also boasts a UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Town, a predominately baroque one as opposed to Tallinn’s Medieval Old Town & Riga’s Art Nouveau Old Town. But, and with all due respect to UNESCO listed Old Towns, Vilnius is a city of churches – its has more houses of worship, of any denomination, than you can shake a crucifix at.
