On your next trip to Lithuania’s capital be sure to consider our Vilnius car hire services. Vilnius is the country’s largest city with a very diverse and multi cultural makeup featuring large number of Poles, Russians, Belorussians and Ukrainians.
When you fly into the city you will be landing at Vilnius Airport, the country’s largest airport which is located six kilometers south of the city center. It is linked to the city via bust routes, train lines and of course taxis but your best choice by far would be to employ our Vilnius car rental services and have your choice of car ready for you at the airport as soon as you land.
Once there you can start your visit with the Old Town which features buildings which date back from the 13th to the 19th century. Then there’s the Gediminas Castle which is a red-brick tower restored from the castle which was built there during the 13th and 14th centuries. The top of the tower offers the best view over Vilnius.
One of the most important attractions in the city is Vilnius Cathedral as well as its Square. The first church was built here in 1251 but then about a century later a cathedral in the Gothic style was built, and now it’s a cathedral built in a classical style. As expected from such an old building it features a series of catacombs as well which can be visited.
Another church that you should visit is St. Peter’s and Paul’s Church, while it may not strike you from the outside the inside is shockingly beautiful.
Christianity is very important in Lithuania and this is evidenced by the many places of worship that its capital features but there is one other monument which is a reminder of how important the faith is to Lithuanians and that is the Three Crosses Hill. This is a monument dedicated to seven Franciscan monks who were tortured by pagans before the country converted to Christianity.
These are of course only a few examples of the sights that Vilnius has to offer so in order to see as much of the city as possible on your next trip there make sure to consider our Vilnius car hire services.
