Think you are too old for fairy-tales? Well, in Vilnius angels watch over the streets – thanks to Vaidotas Ramoska’s sculptures, and iron wolves howl in hidden corners. The churches look like wedding cakes and every year hundreds of Santas race through the streets, cheered on by families at the Christmas market. With its Old Town of little markets, cosy restaurants and marvellous architecture, this Lithuanian city may be a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but it is anything but staid.
Easter bunnies are so last year! Welcome Vilnius’ Easter Granny bringing local children chocolate eggs each year.
Check out the independent district of Uzupis with its distinguished bohemian vibe. On April 1st each year you will find mock border guards ready to stamp your passport and show you the way to their mad independence party. Once you are done celebrating like a maniac, hop on one of the traditional Škoda-14Tr trolleybuses around town for a truly local adventure.
