Vilnius Outside: The Best You Can Get

Vilnius offers many possibilities for spending time outdoors. Here are a few places and activities worth trying while visiting Vilnius.

Vingis Park

Breathe in some fresh forest air at Vingis Park, a favourite place for outdoor fun. Cyclists, joggers and sports enthusiasts flock to this park, but it’s also a perfect spot to relax in the sun. It’s walking distance from Vilnius Old Town, but once you’re there it’ll feel like an entirely different world. If you go into a less busy area, you might be lucky enough to spot some wildlife.

Bernardine Garden

Discover a green oasis right next to the city’s main sightseeing objects. A musical fountain, a botanical exhibition, and the Old Town’s oldest oak tree offer a quick escape from the sounds of the city. Feed the ducks, play some chess, and look up at the Hill of Three Crosses.

Verkiai Park

See the astonishing panoramas of Vilnius from above at Verkiai Park. You can visit a former pagan shrine, take a walk in an old forest, and see the 18th-century mansion. It’s a perfect starting point for a hike along the river. 

Outdoor Activities

Vilnius is a very convenient city to explore sights by bicycle or scooter. You can easily rent it without any close contact with others. Bicycle tracks have been developing fast recently. You can reach all mentioned parks above with the bicycles.
