Vilnius: City of Churches and Culture

Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, is a vibrant and beautiful city that at the same time felt more laid back than the other Baltic cities we visited. It has an interesting and well-restored Old Town, is incredibly green and -- given Lithuania's very strong Roman Catholic identity -- is filled with myriad opulent churches, similar to Polish cities.
