This is the historical, monumental cemetery of Vilnius. Some grave stones are very nice. You can also find the remains of soldiers of a series of wars (Napoleon's, WW1, WW2) and of the victims/heroes of the 1991 Lithuanian Independence events. It's better to visit it...More

Located outside the town centre (east), but do visit if you can. Really impressive and beatiful cemetery, called by the tourist office as the "Pantheon of the Republic of Lithuania" and I cannot disagree. A monument for the soldiers of Napoleon's Grande-Armée, graves of and...More
