Vilnius – not quite what I expected

Vilnius was my first stop in the Baltics after landing in Helsinki and having spent two days there. I was apprehensive as I didn’t know what to expect. I enjoy traveling solo but that also means that I am always on alert mode and on the lookout for any possible dangers.

Lo and behold – there was really nothing to worry about. Somehow Vilnius reminded me of Budapest. The place was beautiful and the people were equally attractive. It had a very modern European vibe – not what I was expecting at all.

Things were also remarkably affordable. I could get by easily with just €6 – 7 per meal.
