What to do in
Nestled in between Russia and Poland, the three Baltic republics are modest in size but grand in history. As the largest city in Lithuania, Vilnius is the perfect expression of this rich past. Napoleon dubbed it the Jerusalem of the North in reference to the large Jewish community living there at the time, and today you can still see diversity all around. So much so that the historical centre, one of the largest on the continent, is classed as a World Heritage Site. But that’s not the only feature of this city founded 700 years ago by Grand Duke Gediminas...
