Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in front of the Gediminas Monument in Cathedral Square, located in the Old Town. Your tour will focus on the history of Vilnius, an area that developed during the Soviet period. Pass the Green Bridge, the Planetarium, Lukiskiu Square, and the former KGB headquarters. As you go, hear tales about KGB spies, and learn about the role that basketball played in Lithuania's independence and how Lithuania and Vilnius were incorporated into the USSR.

    You'll also stop to see the most iconic Soviet-era buildings, such as the former Palace of Concerts and Sport, Opera and Ballet Theatre, and the House of Scientists.

    Your tour will conclude in Kudirkos Square, a 5-minute walk from your original departure point.
