Gediminas Castle, Vilnius: 69 reviews and 130 photos

by matcrazy1

There was an observation deck on the top of the Gediminas Tower with amazing views over Vilnius, its old town, newly built skyscrapers, Soviet style suburbs and nearby mountains/hills. Notice that there were two seperate stairways in the tower: the one for the historical exposition and the one just for the top observation deck.

There were only a few visitors and binoculars on the top, paid as I remember 1 Lt (get change ready).

I met there a young woman. She was a journalist and student of art and history from... China and she stayed in Vilnius for 2 weeks. She went to Vilnius to write a book about its history and art, surely in Chinese :-). We were talking about life in China, Poland and Lithuania what I found very interesting. China is on my future list... and Poland was on the list of the woman.
