Vilnius, the 10th-century city that is the capital of Lithuania, exudes a warm charm. Visitor should start their tour on Castle Hill, where Gediminas' Tower offers a spectacular view of the city. It was there that Lithuania's yellow, green and red flag was raised in 1988 for the first time in decades. To the northeast is the 14th-century Church of St. Peter and St. Paul, with a plain facade that belies its sumptuous interior. And just to the west, at the foot of the hill, is Gediminas Square, with a Roman Catholic cathedral (built on the site of a pagan temple) and bell tower.
