  • There is a great walk behind this museum. First, the walls of the old city. Next, a wonderful walk along the lake with places to stop and enjoy.

  • Really beautiful & scenic castle on the lake, about a 30 min each way bus trip from Vilnius (~5€ round trip). The setting is gorgeous, especially if you go on a nice sunny day (I’m sure it’s nice in winter weather also, but with little shelter to be had, I’d not personally wanna be stuck out there in the cold). I opted not to go inside the museum itself, as it’s prohibitively expensive, especially for Lithuania (~13€ for 1 adult ticket). I also hate to be a buzzkill, but the castle itself is a reconstruction from the early 1960’s, so it’s scenic & great for photos, but it’s not exactly what I’d call authentic. Worth the trip, I think, but again, more for the setting & scenery & the area’s historical significance (as a former capital & royal residence of Lithuania).
  • Only church relics art Exposition in the chapel and in the basement. Ok for a short stop. Hopefully exposition will be expanded later.
