Stebuklas, Vilnius
(4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
The deep-red Stebuklas tile marks the southernmost point of an estimated 2 million-person chain that served as a peaceful protest against Soviet occupation, coined the Baltic Way. The 676 km (420 mi) human chain was formed on August 23, 1989, and stretched through Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania to link their capitals. Today, the tile is intended to be a symbol of hope--the word stebuklas means "miracle." You can make a wish by stepping onto the tile, closing your eyes, thinking about your wish, and spinning in a circle three times. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Vilnius holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Stebuklas and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • This tile marks a chain of approximately 2 million people, through the three capitals Vilnius, Riga and Tallinn. The chain was formed in 1989 as a political protest against the Soviet occupation and spanned 650 km from here to Tallinn. Today this tile is a symbol of hope and inspiration. Calls on the people to believe in miracles. Do you have a secret dream or desire you style on the tile, then close your eyes, and whisper your wish and turn 3 times around in a clockwise direction. Either you will get your wish fulfilled elles you will be magically transported back to 1989 (or both, depending on what you want ...)

  • A little difficult to find, but it is basically between the Cathedral and the tower. It was said that it would make a wish and then spin a lap. Time may well prove if desire comes true!
