Plan for the Parents

When visitors come from the States, the big decision is always — what to see what while in Lithuania?  The following is the tentative sightseeing plan for my parents’ visit.  Everything is, of course, subject to change.

Wednesday: sightseeing in Vilnius — Pilies gatve, Old Town, Cathedral, Gediminas Castle, Gediminas Street, Dawn Gates (accomplished)

Thursday and Friday: Kaunas by train — Kaunas Castle, Vytautas Church, St. Jurgis Church, Old Town, Kalanta memorial, Vtyautas Magnus University, confluence of the Nemunas and Neris Rivers; bonus — Hansa Days festival

Saturday: more sightseeing in Vilnius

Sunday: Surininkų Namai — cheese-making village outside of Vilnius

Monday: Trakai Castle

Tuesday: Rumšiškės Ethnographic Museum
