The winter in Vilnius is dark and cold, so when Christmas time comes around, the lights really help to brighten up the city. This year, the Christmas market in Cathedral Square is surprisingly beautiful, easily the nicest one that I've seen. The stores in the market feature gifts and food such as bubble waffles, dried meats, Dutch pancakes, and more.
It is great go go for a stroll through the market after dark (3:30 pm!) for a great view of the lights strung up from the tree to the market stalls. It really looks great!
In 2016, the Christmas festivities in Vilnius run until December 29th, so you still have a bit of time to plan your visit!
Take a look at the Christmas markets from 2014.
What is your local Christmas market like? Does it change year to year?
