    Vilnius has long been known as a center for culture, art and science – it is not by chance that it is called the Athens of the North. Thousands of artists – wood carvers, sculptors, ceramists, painters, architects – have left their footprints in Vilnius and its surroundings. Wood that echoes the features of a duke, an apple tree that has turned into a plaintively singing fife, clay and stone that take on incredible forms in the skilful hands of the artist. It is fascinating, amazing and inspiring. This two-day trip will take you to a place that thrives on creativity – it may sometimes go unnoticed, but it is real and it is alive.
