Excursion “Secrets of Vingis park”

Tuesday, July 17, 5.30 pm | Vingis Park gates (M. K. Čiurlionis St, Vilnius)

Meeting point: Vingis Park gates on M. K. Čiurlionis St

The Christopher Summer Festival was one of the first to reveal the architecture of Vilnius to the capital’s residents and guests, organising its concerts in courtyards, squares and churches where none of the arts had ever set foot before.

And this year, it invites you to refamiliarise yourself with the spaces where the sounds of music may be heard, together with the founder of “Streets Alive” and best Vilnius city guide title-holder (2016), Albertas Kazlauskas!

  • About the excursion. We shall get to learn about the history of this territory, the former grand Jesuit palace, search for the lost lake, walk along the former military railroad embankment, and work out why Vingis Park is sometimes called Lithuania’s oldest forest.
  • Duration: approx. 75 min.
  • No discounts apply.
