Vilnius TV Tower

The futuristic spire of the tallest tower in Lithuania houses a rotating viewing platform and a café with unbeatable views of the surrounding countryside.

The needlepoint tip of the Vilnius TV Tower soars 1,071 feet (327 meters) into the sky, making it the tallest structure in the country. Completed in 1980, the colossal television and radio broadcast tower has become a distinctive symbol for Vilnius and is regularly decorated for special events in the city. Discover the mesmerizing view from the TV Tower’s observation deck. You’ll see unparalleled views of Vilnius and beyond.

Gaze up anywhere across the city to see the Vilnius TV Tower, the tallest structure in Vilnius. Visit the tower to explore its lower levels and take the elevator to its soaring upper decks. Enter the base of the tower to find an exhibit that commemorates the Lithuanian struggle for independence and the lives of 14 unarmed civilians who were killed during an uprising against the Soviet military in 1991. A blockade was installed at the base of the tower when the military attempted to seize it and over 700 people were injured in the clash.

Look for commemorative markers and memorial trees around the base of the tower. The 26-foot (8-meter) bronze sculpture Sacrifice raises her arms to the heavens from her stance on a bell of freedom.

Rise up 18 levels in 45 seconds inside the tower’s high-speed elevator and reach the dizzying heights of the observation deck. Here, you’ll find the Paukščių Takas (Milky Way) restaurant, a futuristic dining area with a rotating floor. The observation deck is 541 feet (165 meters) high and rotates once every 55 minutes. Enjoy lunch or dinner and gaze out at the slowly changing landscapes. You can also see the views over just a cup of tea or coffee.

Try to identify the many landmarks in the Vilnius city skyline. On a clear day, the range of visibility from the tower can reach over 30 miles (50 kilometers).

Vilnius TV Tower is located in Karoliniškės, 3 miles (5 kilometers) west of the city’s historic center. Reach the tower on foot, by car or by public transportation. There is a fee to enter the tower and English-language audio guides are available for rent.
