Vilnius, Lithuania

Though many told us to visit Kaunas if we went to the beautiful country of Lithuania, we decided to stick to Vilnius and spend the (almost) last days of our 2 1/2 week tour exploring the city and it's secrets. 

Vilnius was hot, beautiful, full of great little bars and pubs and interesting history. Our hosts from Australia and Germany gave us a grand tour of everything and now I miss the sun there. 

To me, Vilnius was a great mix of grungy pubs, artsy corners and amazing people. It had so much potential and gorgeous scenery, combining a relaxed atmosphere with interesting history (don't miss the genocide museum, a sad place to visit but well worth it) without being overly touristy. A backpackers heaven with low prices and lots to see.
