Gediminas Tower, Vilnius Reviews

  • Reaching the entry point of the tower became the biggest challenge and we took almost two rounds of the huge tower to find the entry. Due to restoration work, the regular entries were temporarily non-functional. At one point we almost gave up the idea but at that very precise moment we found a ray of hope as we saw some other people, who earlier seemed lost like us, and decided to follow them. And then miraculously we all found the point of entry. We went up the tower to get a good view of the city. We could see the river which divided Old Town from the Modern Vilnius. The view was a fusion old and new Vilnius.

  • It was interesting to visit this the most famous place in Lithuania. The view from the top of it is very good. Inside this tower you won't find anything super interesting. The price is too high I think. We expected to see more inside

  • There is a castle on the hill. The hill is falling down. Construction site destroys the beauty but it is still very nice

  • The tower was closed and we cannot go there when we were visiting there. We’ve seen it from the view tower in the National museum and the three crosses mountain. No idea how beautiful it could be.

  • Great place to visit when the weather is good. Excellent view of Vilnius from the top.
