  Defence Tower of the Castle
by Carletto76

Not much remains of the upper castle, just the red-bricked tower is well preserved, while there around up on the hill there are still some ruins, not much interesting.
But it's really worth to go up there to see the view of the town and the interesting exposition inside the tower, where you can take a look ad models of the old settlement of Vilnius with the two castles up and down Gediminas hill. There inside you can also see armours, swords, ancient coins and other expositions that introduces to the history of Lithuania.
