As the tallest building in the country, Vilnius TV Tower offers unrivaled views and holds a memorial for those who died in 1991 resisting Soviet troops. Standing more than 326 m (1,071 ft) tall (with its antenna included), the tower rises above Vilnius, forming a notable piece of its skyline. Ascend via elevator to the observation platform; from here you can enjoy a panoramic view of the city and its surroundings, or get a drink or bite to eat at the tower's cafe. The entire platform makes a complete revolution once every hour. Don't miss the museum on the ground floor, dedicated to the 14 Lithuanian civilians killed in their attempts to blockade Soviet forces in 1991 and defend their country's newly asserted independence.

  • Honestly if you’re in Vilnius as a tourist you’ll visit here undoubtedly. Is it worth it honestly? No. For the experience, yes. So it’s a deck that basically rotates like a rotisserie around a 360...

  • Of course, the best views in all of Vilnius! 360 degrees spinning tables let you enjoy the view of all of Vilnius sitting at one table! The tower is under renovation but the restaurant itself is not part of the renovation right now. People talk that the food is not so good and way too expensive but we wanted to try it for ourselves. And we were surprised! The food was really good and tasty. We had beef steak with hemp seed - pepper crust served with grilled vegetables, steak chips and plum sauce and roasted salmon with mixed salad leaves, courgettes, peppers, cherry tomatoes and orange sauce. For the dessert, we tried hot crispy waffles. Everything was delicious, the steak is the winner of course! Would love to come back after the renovation of the restaurant itself because it bit outdated and loud!
  • Nice views over the surrounding area but hard to distinguish the old town of Vilnius. The lady at the register was friendly but absolutely not efficient. People who had bought tickets beforehand online were still asked to join the same queue. Parking really is an issue as there are only a few parking spots available. On the open platform you have plenty of space and you can spend as much time as you like.
  • The best way to see Vilnius from above is to visit the Vilnius TV Tower. It is currently undergoing reconstruction in some areas but it does not affect the visiting public. From what I read, the reconstruction and upgrade started last year 2021 and should be finished by 2024. So it is expected that the TV tower would be modernized. As of now, it has the vibes of the 80’s, old furnishings and interior. There’s a restaurant above, just perfect for some snacking but not a great place to dine. There is an entrance fee to get to the top, in addition to the food or drinks you will have at the restaurant which is the only viewing point as of this time.
  • The food at the restaurant was very good, I had the pork shoulder with fry, green beans and green pepper sauce. The real surprise was the cheesecake, even better than others I've had in New York. I liked the ambient and the view of the city is great, it's nice to talk about it whilst having a good meal. Everything about it was good.
  • Really cool piece of Soviet architecture. Rotating Restaurant at the top is a fun experience that offers good food at reasonable prices. They views across the city are also breathtaking. Well worth a visit!
