» » » » » Vilnius. A voyage to Vilnius, Lithuania, Europe.

Bizarre, beautiful and bewitching, Lithuania’s capital seduces visitors with its astonishing Old Town charm. Its chocolate-box baroque skyline littered with the spires of Orthodox and Catholic churches are intoxicating, decadent and fragile - so much so that Unesco has declared this, Europe’s largest baroque old town, a World Heritage site. But there’s more to this devilishly attractive capital than meets the eye. There is an underlying oddness that creates its soul.
Where else could there be the world’s only statue of psychedelic musician and composer Frank Zappa? Or a self-proclaimed, unofficial, independent republic inhabited by artists and dreaming bohemians?
Strange bars glow inside dark courtyards and medieval archways frame the life of the narrow, cobbled streets through which change has swept with panache. Using foreign cash and local vision, this stylish little city has big plans. But new business and infrastructure - even a skyscraper skyline - won’t disguise the curious charm of eccentric, soulful Vilnius.
