A sense of what the fortifications of Vilnius would have been. Just along the road outside of the walls is the food market also well worth wandering through.

As others have said it helps to have an understanding of the gates of the city wall prior to visiting. The gate itself is well preserved.

The Gates of Dawn is the last of the gates built to protect the city. The chapel contains an image of Blessed Virgin Mary Mother of Mercy.

You walk through the gates to get to the Old Town, they are even more imposing at night. It is a very almost magical experience as you walk through the gates as if you are walking back in time. Stunning.
