Lithuania's capital has many museums. The Museum of the Victims of Genocide, housed in a building that served as the KGB headquarters during the Cold War, is a poignant testimony to the recent past. The National Museum of Lithuania has remarkable collections on the history and culture of the country. More unusual, the Museum of Illusions offers surprising optical illusions.


Take a trip to Trakai

Less than 30 kilometres west of Vilnius, the Trakai region is famous for its lakes and green landscapes. Trakai Castle, built on an island in Lake Galvė in the 13th and 14th centuries, once had a strategic military function. Today, this powerful mediaeval fortress has been fully restored and is open to visitors as a testament to the skills of its builders.


Reaching the Gediminas Tower

The tower is the last remaining part of the old Vilnius Castle, built on a high point in the late Middle Ages. Now a museum, it is named after a famous historical figure in Vilnius: Gediminas, who became Grand Duke of Lithuania in 1316. You can reach the top of the hill on foot, or take the funicular railway to enjoy the spectacular view.
