体验内容

Exploring the Soviet past in Vilnius means diving into its quirks and absurdities, the funny and sad stories, and the harsh realities about life in ‘the best country in the world.’ On this tour, you’ll learn about Stalin’s horrors, as well as our the struggles, resistance, and drive for freedom that destroyed the Soviet empire.
For 50 years, Lithuania was a Soviet republic and this period left many visible marks. This is a country where partisan war lasted for nine years, where almost every family has someone who perished in Gulags, where unarmed people protected their country from Soviet tanks, and where the collapse of the Soviet Union began.

WE’ll meet for our Vilnius walking tour at the Town Hall, then visit oldest remaining market in Vilnius. Here we will try a Lithuanian specialty: salted and smoked bacon and “black bread,” which helped people to survive through both good and bad times.

Walking and riding through Soviet blocks, WE’ll tell you about what life was like to be a citizen during that era - WE’ll pop into a Soviet-inspired restaurant to taste very special ‘delicacies’ from Soviet times discuss all the details and rituals of daily life, like what locals ate for breakfast, and find out why good friends were more important than money.

YOU will end up your tour in the point of no return - former KGB headquarters and prison - for a different kind of experience.

体验地点

After meeting we will visit the local market. Then we’ll walk toward the former Railway Workers’ union house - a unique place that’s now converted into a nightclub and decorated with modern art. We will have Soviet style lunch before heading to the Soviet block apartment district to stroll through classified factories and ride to Wedding Palace.
Our final stop will be where the Soviet era started and ended - former KGB headquarters and prison.

The tour was interesting and really helped us understand just how much influence and control the Soviets had over Lithuania. It was interesting to see some of the changes they made to the Vilnius architecture and city layout. The food was very good too!
