Special excursion in Gediminas Castle Tower
We invite foreign tourists to celebrate the Day of National Costume on special excursion. Tour guides, dressed in national costumes, will reveal a long and difficult that revolved around Gediminas Castle Tower.
Once the political centre of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, the Gediminas hill fort bears witness to the settling of the first inhabitants in this territory and the Teutonic crusades against Lithuania, as well as very important recent events: it marks the beginning of the Baltic Way in Lithuania, and somewhat earlier, on 1 January 1919, the Lithuanian tricolour was hoisted on this tower for the first time.
While ascending the narrow stairs of the tower, you will be able to get to know the crucial moments of its long history, the development of the city and the territory of the Vilnius castles, to see Baltic jewellery and the main attributes of warfare.
