Šventaragio g., Vilnius 01143, Lithuania
Vilnius has amazing markets during warm weather months so I had high hopes for the shopping at the Christmas Market. Though the market had excellent snacks (cookies, doughnuts, coffee, etc.), I was disappointed by the options for gift shopping. I...

Literatų g., Vilnius, Lithuania
Vilnius Old Town is the kind of place that you just throw out the guidebook and explore. At every turn and in every nook and cranny of its cobblestone streets and charming buildings, there’s something to be discovered. One of my favorite moments...

Three Crosses, Kalnų parkas, Vilnius 01100, Lithuania
In the heart of Vilnius, on a hill next to the Gediminas Tower is the Hill of Three Crosses. Take an easy hike up the hill to see crosses towering above the city. This is another place to have a great view of the city.

Didžioji g. 31, Vilnius 01128, Lithuania
The Town Hall in Vilnius is well-lit at night with the city's Christmas tree close-by. Surprisingly, the holiday spirit is not as cheerful as I thought, and it seems the holiday market is open on weekends only.

Trakai 21142, Lithuania
Bus from the Central Station in Vilnius to Trakai Castle is 5 ltl and the journey takes less than an hour. The color of the castle looks red from afar, and the reason being it has been restored many times. I was hoping for snow, but instead I was...

We stumbled onto this delightful little spot while wandering the meandering streets of the old town. They have the best koldunai (delicate dumplings with fillings of meat, cheese, potato, etc.), lovingly handmade on the premises. Beautiful, light...

Šv. Ignoto g. 16, Vilnius 01144, Lithuania
This is my favorite place to spend an afternoon working. In Mint Vinetu there is a piano, typewriter, and occasionally, a puppy. What fun! Also, check out the trippy Alice and Wonderland theme painted bathroom. Tip: Opens at 11 am
