Gediminas castle, Vilnius: 65 reviews and 122 photos

by matcrazy1

Look towards northwest from the top of the Gedimainas Tower. I could see first of all Neris River there. It was not Mississipi but quite large river (as for Europe).

I can say that the river divided urban areas of Vilnius into two quite different worlds: older to the sounth and newer (not so pretty) to the north. There was new business district with a few skyscrapers on the oposite (northern) bank built recently.

Address: Arsenalo gatve 5, Vilnius
Directions: On the top of the Gediminas Hill. It was difficult to get there by funicular: read my Warnings Or Dangers tip "No direction signs to funicular!!!" here.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
