Gediminas Tower


The symbol of Vilnius providing a gorgeous view of the city. The remains of the castle built by the Duke Gediminas. Legend has it that the duke had a dream that on top of the hill, right where he hunted down a taurus that day, a large iron wolf was standing and howling hard and loud, like a hundred wolves.

A wise man later interpreted the dream and explained that this was an omen indicating that Gediminas should build a city in this place, which would later become known around the world and would become the magnificent capital city of Lithuania.
