About Vilnius Complex
The Vilnius Castle Complex is a group of defensive,
cultural, and religious buildings on the left bank of the Neris River, near its meeting point
with the Vilnia River, in Vilnius.
The complex evolved between the 10th and 18th centuries, and was one
of the major defensive structures.
Today, the remaining Gediminas tower is the symbol of
the city of Vilnius.
Annually, on the 1st of January, the Lithuanian Flag is hosted on
Gediminas Tower to commemorate Flag Day. The complex is a part of the National Museum of
Lithuania, one of the largest museums in the country. At the top of the tower, there is a good
observation point, from where the panorama of Vilnius Old Town can be admired.
