Stebuklas, Vilnius
(3.9/5 based on 160+ 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.

  • In different cities have something similar. On this wonderful tile must stand up, then (in my opinion, 3 times), make a wish. That will come true. Or does not come to pass. Chances-as much as 50%. Tile is on the square in front of the Cathedral. Something was not long on the eyes. Are you looking for, yes ye shall find.

  • This simple mad at at the foot of the Tower of the Cathedral, indicates where in a human chain 89 start here to come to Tallinn to manifest the will of independence of the Baltic republics. From dwell, necessarily.

  • Think of the wish, when you are on a tile you should see towers of three churches. Spin 3 times and while spinning look at those towers with crosses. :)
