See an unusual side of Vilnius on a ghost walking tour. Learn about the city’s dark secrets and superstitions from your guide as you wander the dim-lit streets of Old Town. Visit Vilnius Satan House and Kingdom of Death and spot eerie church frescoes. Take a shot of “Devil’s drink” as you explore the city.
There is no question that Vilnius has a charming old town with its cozy narrow streets, magnificent Baroque churches, and breathtaking panoramas. However, throughout its history, those romantic corners have also witnessed cold-blooded murderers, ghosts, and even Satan, the prince of hell himself. Behind closed doors and below lavishly decorated Church domes, horrific and bloody secrets are hidden from the unsuspecting passerby.
Warm up before leaving to the cold and dark Old Town to listen to the stories of cold blooded murderers, ghosts, and even Satan, prince of hell, himself. See the creepy frescoes in the hall of the church and find out what is happening under it with the help of some vivid pictures shown to you by your guide. If skulls and bones did not scare you enough, next stop is more connected with the recent history. Learn what mothers can do in one of Soviet-era courtyards in the Old Town. After this, your guide will take you to the Town Hall square to tell you more about the cold winter when Napoleon with his army was retreating from Moscow and stopped in Vilnius on a way. Next on the itinerary some other highlights of the Old Town like Holy Trinity church behind the Basilian gate, the Gate of Dawn. Just the stories are different from the ones the guides give you at the daytime. And that is not the end yet. The guide will take you to The Bastion of Vilnius Defence Wall. Find out what beast lived there. The tour finishes in one of the courtyards in the heart of the Old Town next to Pilies street. The guide will give you directions how to get back to your hotel/apartment or help you to find the nearest bar.
