Welcome to Vilnius
Vilnius Inbaltics is back.
Very pleasant and very beautiful, thatís what comes to ones mind when talking about Vilnius. The city displays a variety of both architectural expression and willpower. This is perhaps due to the interesting history that rests in this attractive town, which not always has been the capital of Lithuania. However, for over five centuries, untill he 18th century, Vilnius had been political and cultural centre of Grand Duchy of Lithuania. The Old Town is Vilnius was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1994 just because the town "has preserved an impressive complex of Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and classical buildings as well as its medieval layout and natural setting". 2009 Vilnius was the European Capital of Culture.
From a business point of view Lithuania has surprised the world with its strength and rapid growth in all the spheres of business. As one of the new members in the European Union Lithuania and Vilnius is the perfect starting point for doing business in the Baltic Countries.
The people of Vilnius has for many times been forced to go along with different kind of conquerors. The city has therefore a long history of being occupied and that has of course left its mark on the whole of the city. But today Vilnius is a free and independent capital that takes advantage of this motley heritage. As a visitor to Vilnius, you will discover what that means. Its many different churches and festivals are a treasure to exploit and the old town gives you an experience worth remembering. The people of Vilnius are well educated, kind and gentle, and Vilnius is still not to overexploited as a tourist destination.
