The capital of Lithuania, Vilnius, boasts an impressive medieval quarter--one of the continent's largest and a World Heritage Site with almost 2,000 historical buildings.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Vilnius: Trakai (Trakai Island Castle Museum & Kenesa). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at KGB Museum (Genocido Auku Muziejus), take in the spiritual surroundings of Gate of Dawn, take an in-depth tour of Gediminas Castle Tower, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Anne's Church.

To find maps, more things to do, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Vilnius online road trip planner.

Tel Aviv, Israel to Vilnius is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. Plan for much colder temperatures traveling from Tel Aviv in September, with highs in Vilnius at 20°C and lows at 9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Mon) to allow time to drive to Riga.
