Vilnius - Gediminas' Tower

The tower is what remains of the ancient castle, situated on top of the hill which dominates the Old Town. Inside you can see an exhibition of archaeological finds coming from the surrounding areas. Together with the Television Tower, this is the best place to enjoy the panorama of the city from an elevated point of view. You can either climb to the top or take the funicular, which was inaugurated in 2003 to connect the short but strenuous path from the national museum to the hilltop. The price for adults is 2 Lt, 1 Lt for school children and students, whereas it is free for aged people and children under the age of 10.
