The National Museum of Lithuania in Vilnius (Lietuvos Nacionalinis Muziejus) is impossible to miss. It’s situated below the castle hill, and the Gediminas’ Tower appears to be hovering just above it.
After finishing up shooting the Vilnius Skyline from the castle, we descended, eager for a hot chocolate to warm ourselves up. However, when I saw the view, I knew I still needed to take one more shot. The National Museum’s lights, King Mindaugas’ statue, and the Lithuanian flag waving in the freezing wind on Gediminas’ Tower came together so beautifully.
As I took the shot, I couldn’t help but think about the city’s centuries of history. From the grandeur of the Gediminas’ Tower to the cultural treasures housed within the National Museum of Lithuania, Vilnius is truly a gem of Eastern Europe.
Despite my hands freezing to the tripod, I managed to freeze this moment in time with my photograph.
During our visit of Vilnius, unfortunately, we didn’t manage to go inside the museum, so I can’t make any recommendations. Anyways, if you consider going, here you’ll find more information of the current exhibitions. The museum has over 800,000 exhibits in its collection, ranging from prehistoric times to the present day.
