End point of the Miracle Line that started in Tallinn and stretched all of the way to Vilnius (or if you're Lithuanian, started in Vilnius and stretched to Tallinn). Tour guides claim that it is a local tradition to spin three times on the commemorative tile stone and make a wish. None of the locals I have spoken to outside... More

This little square tile lies between the Cathedral Basilica and its Bell tower. It marks one end (the other was in Tallin) of the 2.000.000+ people human chain, who protested against the Soviets in 1989. As a symbol of freedom and hope it is customary to make a full circle and make a wish.

1) if you near cathedral Square you must find this brick on floor; 2) easy find- all time around flock of people; 3) every one stay on brick, look to Cathedral, close eyes, make wish, ant tern three time around him. It look nice. 4) it in big Cathedral square;

I read the reviews and I am always attracted to statues, monuments or sites that have a story or connection to good luck or fortune. And I read this is not the easiest thing to find and many people just fall onto it. Not the case for us. We probably circled cathedral square 2-3 times and I finally broke down... More

This tile might easily be missed if you don't know to look for it. But it's an important part of history and actually means 'miracle'. It marks the southern part of the human chain going through the capitals of the Baltics - Estonia, Riga and Vilnius. If you find it, you should spin yourself around for three times and make... More

This tile at end/beginning of two-million-person human chain to demand Soviets leave Baltics, 8/23/1989, months before Berlin Wall fell, is embedded in the concrete square between Vilnius Cathedral and the Cathedral Bell Tower (the round medieval-appearing tower just outside the main entrance). Depending upon perspective, it is located at either the end (Vilnius?) or the beginning (Tallinn, Estonia?) of the... More

Yes, it is just a tile amid the thousands that cover the ground at Cathedral square. It represents a unique moment in the history of the three Baltic countries. And the fun part is finding it! PS: TripAdvisor asks me if I would recommend this to "shopping fanatics". Well, maybe if they are so crazy about shopping that they would... More

A small and somewhat conspicuous place. You would miss it if you weren't looking but is important for the Baltic states and well worth finding if you're visiting the Cathedral. It's the place where a continuous human chain stretching across the three Baltic states in protest against Soviet occupation occurred. Interesting feature to see but only for a minute or... More

This tile is very small and plain but represents an enormous event which started here or ended here, depending on who you are or where you are from. The square in the Cathedral Square is at the point of one end of the Baltic Way, the human chain of more than 2 million people who locked arms from Tallinn, Estonia... More
