Located on a chain of picturesque hills and at the confluence of the Vilnia and Neris Rivers, the city, in spite of its actual size, seems to be rather small and cozy. The main assets of the Lithuanian capital include charming alleys, steep streets and historical tenement houses.
When visiting Vilnius we will find many places related to the history of Poland because in the past Vilnius was one of the biggest centers of the Polish culture on the territory of Kresy Wchodnie [Eastern Borderlands]. The city is inhabited by nearly 90 thousand Poles what accounts for more than 15 percent of its total population.
If a panorama of the capital seen from the Gediminas’ Tower leaves you curving more, even more spectacular views can be seen from a cafe of the Vilnus TV Tower in the Karoliniškės district. The observation deck lying at the height of 160 meters makes a full rotation every 45 minutes.
