Užupis, the “Republic of Artists,” is where creativity reigns supreme. Graffiti art adorns the walls, and you might even stumble upon a street performance or two. It’s like walking through an outdoor gallery where the artists are the residents themselves.

When you need a break from sightseeing, head to Vingis Park for a dose of nature in the heart of the city. You can join the locals for a leisurely bike ride or simply relax by the river and watch the world go by.

And let’s not forget about the food – Vilnius is a culinary delight! From hearty potato dishes to mouthwatering pastries, you’ll find something to satisfy every craving. Just be sure to save room for dessert – those Lithuanian sweets are dangerously addictive.
