What is culture? It's one of those tricky questions that you could write a painfully long book about. Luckily, we've only got room for a few sentences, so you won't have to suffer too much. Suffice it to say that Vilnius is a sophisticated city that has much to recommend it to culture vultures. Music, art, cinema and theatre all thrive here. And then of course there are the architectural treasures that host the concerts, exhibitions and other events. By scrolling down on the toolbars above, you can zoom straight to what you're after. Vilnius has a decent selection of museums, galleries and concert halls. And besides the all year round attractions, there is an ever increasing number of festivals throughout the seasons, from folk flourishes to film magic. Vilnius is your oyster!
