Vilnius completes a trilogy of Bradt pocket-size guides to the Baltic capitals, providing all the essential listings and background on these new European members. Highlights of each city quarter are presented in a comprehensive city tour that takes in the cathedral, archaeological exhibitions, the old university with its astronomical observatory, and the Gates of Dawn (Lithuania's most famous place of pilgrimage). No stay in Vilnius would be complete without a visit to the nearby Trakai National Park, with its picturesque medieval island castle and old town, home to the Karaites sect.This guide features:>Exploring Vilnius's Old Town, castles, churches, and monuments>Hotel suggestions to suit every budget and taste>Restaurants, including local specialties and where to find live folk music>Transportation within and beyond the city, and other practicalities
