Favorite thing: Belmontas is nowadays a recreation and entertainment centre just outside of the city. In the 14th century this area used to be a mill complex, which was run by French aristocrats.

All buildings were beautifully restored and now many of them house restaurants, bars or cafes. They are often used for wedding receptions.

On a stroll along the river and through the adjacent forest one can discover water falls, several bridges, fountains and the historic authenic buildings.

We visited Belmontas with VT member Raimix who drove us here and also showed us around. At the end of our visit we had a drink and a snack at the Joana Carinova's Inn Restaurant, where I had tasty Potato Pancakes with a bacon crisps sauce for 11,90 Litas.

Directions:
Belomontas is situated about 5 km east of Vilnius' city centre, somewhere east of the Uzupis district. As far as I know it can't be reached by public transport, so you have to either go by taxi or have a VT friend who takes you there.
