From the outside it doesn't look much but this place is huge! From the basement with the old walls through the many floors of exhibitions this place is seriously good value for money. Highly recommend.

You get a lot for your money here. €3 for four floors, including the excavated foundations of the old castle and an observation tower overlooking the city. Well worth a visit and better value than the bell tower by the cathedral, which is €4.50 just...More

The Palace of the Grand Duchy is located in Cathedral Square and was the royal residence. Dates to 14th century but has been reconstructed several times. It is now a museum. Didn't have time to go inside. Exterior is very pretty.

This palace is full of information about Lithuania's history, it is truelly in the centre of the city and cost just 3 euro's. There is a lot to see so certainly worth a visit.

This gleaming pristine edifice with miles of galleries is like a mini-Louvre and Tower of London put together and is well worth the ticket price. You will get filled to the gills with Lithuanian history from the days before all the muddiness of the 20th...More
