Lithuania’s capital and biggest city, Vilnius, boasts Europe’s largest Baroque old town. Vilnius was under Soviet control for over 50 years and is now regaining a sense of itself. It’s home to some unusual and quirky features, making it a fascinating and fun hostel destination. A statue of the ground-breaking musician, Frank Zappa, stands proudly in the Naujamiestis neighbourhood. Visit the bohemian district of Užupis that exists within the city’s boundary. An independent republic, Užupis's only entry requirement is a smile! Explore the 65 churches dotted about the city which represent a mosaic of different religions. Wander through the charming streets, stopping at a café or meandering into an art gallery. Visit the former KGB headquarters which is now a museum dedicated to the genocide victims of the oppressive Soviet occupation. Or stop by for the hip-swinging Mama Jazz Festival.
