During winter Vilnius looks like a magic town from fairy tales. Streets are covered with white snow, buildings are decorated with lights and Christmas toys and on of the best christmas trees is standing in the main square of the city.

If you decided to visit Vilnius in Christmas time you can find here a lot of cool things to do and to see.

Starting from December 1st you will find a little Christmas market near main Christmas tree. There you can find great ideas for Christmas gifts and buy some sweets.

From December 1st till January 7th you can ride around festive Vilnius in a traditional Christmas Train. It’s main stop is near Cathedral square. Tickets are sold by the driver. You should try it, especially if you are a couple in love.

If you are looking for christmas presents for your friends we suggest you to visit Uptown Christmas: Last Minute Market in Arts Factory “Loftas”, where you will find thousands of present ideas – from hand made to must have hits of the season.

If you are looking for what to see in Vilnius, in December 25-29th you can enjoy The 3D fairy tale on the big wall of Vilnius Cathedral. An amazing 3D projection of a Christmas Fairy Tale will add some magic to your Christmas mood.

The weather in Vilnius can be very cold, so it’s a bit uncomfortable to spend all the time outside. Of course, there are many cozy and nice cafes, where you can have your breakfast or lunch. As for us, we like Crustum cafe in Vokečiu street, where you will find amazing bakery.

If you are cold but already ate smth, you can spend an adventurous time in escape room in Vilnius. There are different topics of escape rooms, so you can choose any that is the most interesting for you. For example, in our Insight Out escape room we have a light horror “Poltergeist” room and technical “Race against Time”. You will spend a fun hour or two in escape room. Moreover we have hot tea and candies 😉 We are situated in the the heart of Vilnius old town, so it’s very comfortable to make a small stop at our place.

There are a lot of interesting music and other kinds of events in Vilnius in December, so you will definitely find something interesting for yourself.
