Old Town Vilnius, Lithuania

Old Town Vilnius, Lithuania

As Vilnius, Lithuania, seemed to only be a side trip on my itinerary, I did not give it much thought. How wrong I was not to consider it more. My day was spent walking for miles in and around the Old Town area, which I found intriguing from all of Vilnius’ dubious history and incredible architecture. A surprisingly cosmopolitan and hip city.

The following is only a small portion of photos I took while in Vilnius, Lithuania, and well worth a travelers time to kick around the idea or visiting for those who are anywhere near the Baltics.

Devin Galaudet is the Editor of In The Know Traveler, an online travel magazine dedicated to international travel and cultural exchange. He also shares his insider information as a working travel writer on his personal blog Travel. Write. Live.. Before travel, he has survived careers in antiques, construction, film and professional card playing. When Devin is not traveling or writing, he lives in Los Angeles with his fiance, pixie-like ten-year-old daughter and his compulsive book buying habit. And yes, I am horseback riding in Costa Rica.

  1. What a coincidence!! I was reading an article about Vilnius this week. I am so happy to take a look at more photos of this lovely place.

  2. Reading your interesting article and peeping into your photos bring back lots of memories about this quaint city. Years back (was it in 1996 or 1997?),I came here to teach at the Science College of Vilnius University.
    Having stayed here almost 2 years, I had all the time in the world to visit all the nooks of the city. The Old Town is particularly interesting, as you said in your article but walking along Gediminio Prospektas to the river is equally fascinating. My small rented single-room apartment on Pilies Gatve (right in the old quarter)was my place of retreat when the temperature got down below freezing (very often in winter).
