Stunning panoramic view of Vilnius but you’ll need to climb up the hill. It might not be very easy to find. There are options to get there. Either cross the bridge across Vilnelė in Bernardinai garden or turn left on Krivių st in Užupis when you pass the gymnasium and go up the hill. Check Google Maps for directions.
