For the citizens of Vilnius, the old town of their city is the 7th wonder of the world – and it’s not surprising. After all, many guests arriving to the capital, even after a short stay in the city of Gediminas admit that the residents of Vilnius are right. We are happy that this beautiful city located on the Neris river was chosen as one of “The Six Baltic Sea Wonders”.

Among 6 laureates of the prestigious plebiscite “The Six Baltic Sea Wonders” that aimed to select the most beautiful and worth seeing places located in the Baltic region there were two Lithuanian places: the old town of Vilnius and the Curonian Spit.

Other laureates are: Gdansk, Masuria, the old town of Tallinn, German island Rugia and its white chalk cliffs.

Winners were chosen by Internet users out of 65 places and objects at www.6-bsr-wonders.net 

The plebiscite is part of the AGORA 2.0 project aiming at strengthening of the common identity of the Baltic region, based on its natural and cultural heritage. The project involves 22 partner institutions from 10 countries of the Baltic States.
