Windy Day At Gediminas Castle

Windy Day At Gediminas Castle

Vilnius, Lithuania

The original Gedimino Tower was part of the former castle and fortress dating from the 13th century.

After a great fire in the 15th century and destruction during the Russian occupation, the tower was greatly restored in 1930. It houses the Upper Castle Museum and can be climbed for panoramic views of Vilnius.
