Vilnius, Lithuania’s capital and biggest city, with a population of 542,664. Vilnius is the second biggest city in the Baltic republics and is situated in southeast Lithuania.

Gediminas’ letters from 1323 are the earliest known written record of Vilnius as the Lithuanian capital.

According to GaWC research, Vilnius is a Gamma global city, and it is noted for the architecture of its Old Town, which was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994. Because of its Jewish influence until the twentieth century, it was dubbed “Jerusalem of Lithuania,” and Napoleon dubbed it “Jerusalem of the North” when passing there in 1812.

Vilnius, together with the Austrian city of Linz, was designated as the European Capital of Culture in 2009.

Tourism in Vilnius

Green spaces, like as parks, public gardens, and natural reserves, encompass about half of Vilnius. In addition, Vilnius has a number of lakes where inhabitants and tourists may swim and grill throughout the summer. Thirty lakes and sixteen rivers cover 2.1 percent of the land of Vilnius, with some of them having sand beaches.

Several big protests were held in Vingis Park, the city’s largest park, during Lithuania’s campaign for independence in the 1980s. Sereikiškės Park, near Gediminas Tower, hosts concerts, festivals, and exhibits. Sections of the annual Vilnius Marathon run along the Neris River’s public pathways. The grassy space close to the White Bridge is another popular spot to enjoy the weather, and it has been the site of various music and large-screen events.

Climate of Vilnius

Vilnius has a humid continental climate.

The average yearly temperature is 6.1 °C (43 °F); the average temperature in January is 4.9 °C (23 °F), while the average temperature in July is 17.0 °C (63 °F).

Summer days are pleasantly warm and sometimes hot, particularly in July and August, with temperatures exceeding 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit) throughout the day during frequent heat waves. At this time of year, Vilnius’ nightlife is in full flow, and outside pubs, restaurants, and cafés become highly popular throughout the day.

Geography of Vilnius

Vilnius is located in southern Lithuania (54°41′N 25°17′E), near the junction of the Vilnia and Neris rivers. A location in Vilnius is claimed by some to be the Geographical Center of Europe.

Vilnius is 312 kilometers (194 miles) from the Baltic Sea and Klaipėda, Lithuania’s main seaport. Highways link Vilnius to other important Lithuanian cities such Kaunas (102 km or 63 mi distant), Šiauliai (214 km or 133 mi away), and Panevėžys  (135 km or 84 mi away). The city’s off-center placement may be traced to the shifting structure of the nation’s boundaries throughout time; Vilnius was previously not just culturally but also physically in the heart of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania.

Vilnius has a current land area of 402 square kilometers (155 sq mi). Buildings take up 29.1 percent of the city, green areas take up 68.8 percent, and water takes up 2.1 percent.

Economy of Vilnius

Vilnius is Lithuania’s main economic center and one of the Baltic nations’ leading financial centers. Despite having just 20% of Lithuania’s population, it contributes almost one-third of the country’s GDP.

Local sophisticated solar and laser technology manufacturing centers are now expanding in Vilnius.

Internet, Comunication in Vilnius

Gedimino Prospect, Vokiečių street Gatve, Pilles street, Cathedral Square, and Town Hall Square are just a few of the city’s free wi-fi hotspots. Some eateries also provide free wi-fi.
