To get to know Lina, why she loves Vilnius so much, and her top recommendations, we invite you to read our short interview with her below.
Your main inspiration: I am inspired by the multitude of angles to tell Vilnius’ history, by the multilayer stories of every Vilnius corner, and by people causing a constant change in Vilnius for the better.
The best tour: The best tours happen once there is a chance to hear travellers’ expectations, and their topics of interest. It may start as a regular tour around the main Vilnius landmarks and take you to the most unexpected hidden gems.
The most fascinating thing about Vilnius: The magnitude of unexpected views – once you raise your eyes in the middle of a street, once you climb a hill or a tower, once you turn off the main streets.
The biggest change within the past 30 years: Last thirty years have raised new generations of local people who have learned to appreciate freedom, respect the diversity of looks, thoughts, and self-expression, and are constantly seeking new connections and adventures. They make Vilnius lively and open-hearted to newcomers and wanderers.
The most unique thing about Vilnius: Vilnius is unique for multiple possibilities to meet and talk to globally famous people like Dalai Lama – they love the local drive for freedom!
