Vilnius TV Tower, Vilnius

4.0
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.

  • We went up the tower to eat and watch the sun setting. Lovely views. The place is clean. The food was overrated with not such pleasant service.  more »

  • We eat at the restaurant. The tables rotate so that you can enjoy the view at 360° during your lunch. If the sky is clear, you can see very far and it certainly add some atmosphere! The food is fresh and good, well presented and tasty. The service is fast and efficient. All in all very recommended for something different than the usual restaurant. Five stars!
  • Excellent views but the accessible area of the tower is basically just a revolving restaurant. Unlike Tallinn's TV tower there is very little to do/experience once you've enjoyed the views. Prices in the restaurant are a little higher than you'd expect (€8 for a burger) and there was a 35 minute wait for our food to be served. That said it was hot and tasty once it arrived
  • Five stars for the view, two stars for the atmosphere in the restaurant/viewing deck, so three stars as an averaged review. First off, the view is really excellent and worth a visit. Ticket prices are reasonable and the ticket desk staff is very pleasant and helpful. But, the security guards at the high speed lift were gruff and impolite (maybe tired after a hard day? no excuse, though). The restaurant itself has kept the same type of service and decor it must have had in the soviet days and is in dire need of new management and redecorating. The place has such high potential, it's sad to see it not being fully used. Food was edible. What surprised me the most is that visitors cannot leave on their own. The lift back down must be called by the waiter (there's even a sign about this near the lift). When I asked why, I was told that this was to prevent people from leaving without paying for their food :))))) . Would be hilarious if it weren't so sad...
  • Nice views. Must visit place at least once. Food is ok at best but desserts are really good. Don't go there to eat, go there to enjoy the sights and relax.
  • Great restaurant and staff from reception to waiters were very accommodating. Food was good, but was more impressed with desserts than main course. Waiter was very helpful when suggesting food items to us. He was also kind enough to take lots of photos during our visit. It is a good place to bring tourists to make their visit to Vilnius memorable.
