Vilnius Alternative Tour
From USD 115.08
Lowest Price Guaranteed
Discover a different side of Vilnius during this 3-hour alternative walking tour. Explore the narrow streets of the city and see why this city was considered to be the most “Western” during Soviet times. Discover eclectic street art, interesting statues, abandoned buildings, and a local market to get a feel for the offbeat culture of the city.
What to Expect

In Soviet times Vilnius was considered the most 'Western' Soviet city because of its long-haired hippies and ideas of freedom. Nowadays most of the alternative ideas can be found by exploring abandoned areas, checking out street art and interesting buildings, bumping into random statues or even just by meeting some locals.

So, if you’ve seen enough churches and cute narrow streets, we suggest you leave the beaten track and discover the other side of Vilnius!

Visit a local market, explore the area around the station which in the next 10 years will supposedly become one of the most prosperous districts in Vilnius, say hi to Tony Soprano, find out why there is a bust of Frank Zappa in Vilnius, enjoy pieces of art and murals from Vilnius street art festival!
