Altana Hill

One of the highest hills in Vilnius got its name from a garden feature - an Altana that you can still see standing here today. It was built by Vilnius native Melanija Dluska around 1933 and used by her husband to grow exotic plants under. Although the city council never gave her permission for the structure, that didn’t stop her. The view from here is spectacular and there’s not much climbing if you just get to the Užupis Gymnasium and take the stairs and path behind it.
