Lithuanian drive for freedom
Welcome to Vilnius and Lithuania or as locals would say SVEIKI ATVYKĘ!
You are already here so you know that Vilnius is the capital of Lithuania, a fairly small country in Northern Europe. In this tour, you will take a live walk with Vilnius tour guide Lina Dusevičienė as she tells you inspiring stories about the Lithuanian fight for freedom over the centuries and how those stories impacted the way Vilnius looks right now.
You will hear stories from the 14th century when Vilnius was born, as well as the stories from the Soviet occupation era, stories about the first rock concerts, our freedom fighters, secret initiatives, and many more. After this tour, you will have a better understanding of why Lithuanians have such a high drive for freedom and why they always emphasize its importance.
Lina recorded this tour while walking on the streets of Vilnius herself so you would be able to feel like walking with a local friend.
