The capital of Lithuania, Vilnius, boasts an impressive medieval quarter--one of the continent's largest and a World Heritage Site with almost 2,000 historical buildings.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Money Museum of the Bank of Lithuania and Chapel of St. John Nepomuk. Take a break from Vilnius with a short trip to Trakai Island Castle Museum in Trakai, about 36 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at KGB Museum (Genocido Auku Muziejus), take in panoramic vistas at Bell Tower of Vilnius Cathedral, visit Vilnius Old Town, and get engrossed in the history at Gediminas Castle Tower.
