    Welcome to Alternative tour and let’s discover cultural and social hotspots of Vilnius.

    We will escape the most visited areas of Vilnius that are popular among locals and tourists, and soon you will be led to the Uptown district to explore some hidden scenes of the city. To feel how the new independent generation lives.

    In this 2 hours walking tour you will visit the world's first memorial to the offbeat American musician Frank Zappa and find out why Lithuanians build monuments for the artists who never visited Lithuania.

    Walking further into the district you will pass through once famous promenade known as 'pogulianka' and hear the stories of its dynamic past in soviet times.

    We will find out what did the Soviet cosmonauts do in Vilnius and what's the meaning of the top secret code 'Post box no 555'.

    During our visit in a once highly industrial area of the city you will hear how the biggest factories of the Soviet era were transformed into cultural and arts centers attracting vibrant communities nowadays.

    Either on foot or by a short ride by public transport we will continue to the most dynamic street art and hip district of Vilnius – the Station area which is in between Brooklyn and Kreuzberg for Vilnius in its scale, of course.

    Admire some wonderful street art painted by some world famous artists and find out which painting made the headlines all over the world.

    Discover our favorite bars and party places that made a significant impact to the rising of the district.
