You will have a promenade in the park that lies near the hill. You can have a romantic stroll along the bank of the river Vilnele that flows into the Neris. In the evening you may go to “Akropolis” – the capital of trade and entertainment. There you can go to the most modern cinema centre to watch a love-story, and have dinner in a pleasant environment.
3rd day. Trip to Trakai – the historical capital of Lithuania. It’s a small island town. In 1321 Grand Duke Gediminas built Trakai castle on the peninsula of Lake Galve. It is an amazing place to feel the ancient times of Lithuanian history. Have romantic lunch in Trakai on the bank of a picturesque lake. Return to Vilnius to the hotel. Transfer from Vilnius to Kaunas. Spend a romantic evening in the second biggest city of Lithuania. Have a promenade in the main street – Laisves avenue, the Old Town. Visit the Castle, Town Hall Square and the surrounding streets.
4th day. We recommend you a romantic route along the Nemunas River from Kaunas to the Baltic sea. This road is considered to be one of the most beautiful roads in Lithuania. It is rich in historical monuments. You will visit three castles along this route: Raudondvaris, Raudone and Panemune. You will see Seredzius Hill and Taurage Castle as well. You will start from Raudondvaris – a settlement with an extremely memorable panorama. Then you will go to Seredzius, which is located near the confluence of the Nemunas and the Dubysa. Seredzius Castle is weaved by nice legends. There are very beautiful sights of nature to see on the way to Raudone! Raudone’s Castle is really an impressive one. It was a very luxurious palace in 17th century, but damaged a little bit by a fire in 19th century. Nevertheless the castle is restored nowadays and it is possible even to climb to the top of it to admire the beautiful landscape. Panemune’s Castle stands on the high bank of the Nemunas and is hidden among the trees. On the way to Palanga you will cross Taurage. A palace, which resembles an ancient castle, stands in the centre of the town. Check in at a hotel in Palanga in the evening.
5th day. Spend your romantic half of the day in Palanga – a resort town near the Baltic sea. We suggest climbing to the top of Birute Hill, where you can feast your eyes on the Baltic. Palanga is famous for its Botanical Park – a place to have a promenade indeed! There are picturesque paths; swans and ducks swim in the ponds. Palanga Botanical Park is considered to be one of the richest and most beautiful parks in Lithuania. You may watch a famous sculpture of Egle near the central path of the Botanical Park. Egle was a legendary wife of a sea serpent. There is a neo-Renaissance style palace and the Amber Museum in Palanga. The story about the origin of amber is weaved by a very romantic legend about Jurate and Kastytis – the sculpture of those two lovers stands in the square near Palanga Bridge. According to the legends Naglis Hill is known as a grave of Naglis, a courageous military leader. It was his bereaved wife who buried him there… Palanga is famous for its night life in the summer – loud and live music, people in the streets. But you can find a very cosy and calm place to have your dinner. It is a town of lovers – the sea, the beach, beautiful parks; this is really a place to be together!
6th day. Continue your time in Palanga – this is not the place to be there only for one evening and then return to Vilnius. You can go to the capital of Lithuania via Siauliai – the fourth biggest city in Lithuania. Visit famous Hill of Crosses and leave a cross for your eternal love!
