Vilnius provides its guests with an exclusive opportunity to enjoy spectacular views of the city from a hot air balloon. A romantic ride offers new perspectives of the city, including the splendid Old Town and a lot of nature that changes with every season. Time tends to stand still during the ride, making room for unforgettable impressions of Vilnius. Expect a special flight ceremony and a glass of sparkling wine once you land.
The riverside and its picturesque path are great for exploring the city on a bike. An open-air gallery by renowned street artists is a perfect starting point for the journey, with the towers of Vilnius and the Old Town on the left. The path leads to Vingis Park, where nature and fresh forest air make for an ideal spot to stop and relax with a coffee in hand.
The high arches of the Church of St. Catherine are very fitting for both contemporary music and traditional classical performances. Concerts fill the air with unique sounds and a special mood. Meanwhile, the modern art exhibitions and abundance of events await at the MO Museum, where a private collection of over 4,000 works is stored.
Walking in the urban landscape of abandoned factories and exploring street art at the Open Gallery can be the start of a romantic date. Electronic or contemporary music in the nearby Loftas art factory serve as an excellent backdrop. At the end of the evening, it’s worth sharing food and conversations with friends at Downtown Food Hall and maybe catching a movie at the friendly Kino Deli.
Amber, the Baltic gold and solid drops of solar heat, relaxes and soothes the body. The Nidos Kopos massage parlour fills the body up with the thousands of years of stored energy and lets it heat up from the inside. It’s easy to feel the Baltic spirit while sipping on amber tea and smelling the sweet aroma of pine.
Lithuania’s most famous composer Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis and Sofija Čiurlionienė – Kymantaitė met at an event in Vilnius and immediately realised that they would be together forever.
The couple’s life was intense: lessons, walks before dawn, exhibitions and writing an opera that was never completed. Their common approach to creativity is what made their love so special.
While away from each other, they spent a lot of time writing letters, but only M. K. Čiurlionis’ letters have survived – Sofija burned hers.
