As usual, like in my Oslo 2015 trip, I’m overplanning my trip. Some things I found online, I also got some inspiration about Vilnius from Kristyna Kubova. I hope she will manage to write about the food before I go to Vilnius, the overall post was interesting.
As usual, those plans won’t be entirely valid, as after coming to town, I will go to the tourist information and ask for some more suggestions.
But let’s start with the first town – Riga.
- book fair (Friday 10:00 – 18:00)
- wooden architecture
- Museum of the Occupation of Latvia 1940-1991 (I want to visit it to understand the better When the Doves Disappeared by Sofi Oksanen which I still want to read). Open daily 11:00-17:00.
- Museum of Photography (Thursday, 12:00-19 entrance fee over 2 euro for permanent exhibition, need to pay a fee to take photos)
- Riga Film Museum (Thursday, 11:00 – 20:00, entrance fee around 3 euro)
- Golden bar & club (Thursday 17:0 – 02:00)
- book fair (Saturday 10:00 – 21:00 or Sunday 10:00 – 17:00)
- Museum of Genocide Victims (Saturday 10:00 – 18:00, Sunday 10:00 – 17:00)
- Literature Street (Literatu gatve) where Adam Mickiewicz 19th Polish romantic poet has lived. Actually, he is considered the national poet of Poland, Lithuania and Belarus, lol.
- Jeruzale Sculpture Garden
- The Republic of Užupis
- The Hill of Three Crosses
- Trakai (Polish: Troki) where there is Karaim synagogue (kienesa)
- SOHO club (Saturday 22:00 – 07:00)
I found a map of LGBT friendly places in Vilnius on Foursquare.
Do you think I should see something else too?
