The capital of Lithuania, Vilnius, boasts an impressive medieval quarter--one of the continent's largest and a World Heritage Site with almost 2,000 historical buildings.
Change things up with these side-trips from Vilnius: Trakai (Trakai Island Castle Museum & Chapel of St. John Nepomuk). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at KGB Museum (Genocido Auku Muziejus), take in the spiritual surroundings of Gate of Dawn, wander the streets of Uzupis, and visit Vilnius Old Town.

Accra, Ghana to Vilnius is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Accra to Vilnius. Prepare for much colder weather when traveling from Accra in January: high temperatures in Vilnius hover around -3°C and lows are around -9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Fri) to allow time to drive to Utena.
