Choral Synagogue Pylimo g. Vilnius Beer pubs, old houses with ghosts, famous museums, and shopping streets with countless tourists – sometimes it feels like there are no little-known places in Vilnius. Even if an excursion in an air balloon doesn’t sound appealing, it’s high time to go under the ground.

Experienced travelers recommend exploring them independently, not during an excursion, as that way it’s more amusing and it’s possible to see many interesting places.

One of the most wonderful places in Europe, its geographical center to be precise, is located in Vilnius suburbs. On maps, this place is marked as Europos geografinis centras.
