Vilnius: 3-Hour Jewish Heritage Tour

4. Vilnius: 3-Hour Jewish Heritage Tour

Explore Vilnius by air-conditioned minibus, with an English-speaking guide, and discover the history of the Jews in the city as you travel through the former ghettos along Žemaitijos Street, discover the Vilnius Choral Synagogue, and go to the Jewish cemetery. The story can be traced back to the 13th century. In folklore Litvaks (Lithuanian Jews) were known for their love of education, no-nonsense straight-talk, and sardonic wit. They first settled in Vilna, as the capital was and still is known in Jewish culture, from around the time of its founding in 1323. By the 18th century, Vilna had become the world capital of traditional religious (Talmudic) learning, and was often referred to as the Jerusalem of Lithuania. Towering over the many great Jewish figures the city has produced is the Talmudic leader, Gaon of Vilna. Some 94 percent of the Litvaks perished in the Holocaust, the highest percentage of genocide in Europe. Today, a small community of around 5,000 Litvaks make bold efforts to maintain their heritage.

We had a wonderful tour with our English-speaking guide, Agnes. She was thoroughly knowledgeable of both Jewish and Lithuanian heritage. She answered all of our many questions, ranging from specific historical details to contemporary facts. She was extremely personable and went to great lengths to satisfy our curiosity. We started our tour with a drive to the Jewish Cemetery where Rabbi Gabon Elijah’s was buried. We also visited the Choral Synagogue, the original street in the Jewish Quarter and saw various photographs of Jewish life between the two world wars. Everything was both extremely revealing and sensitively handled. We would recommend Agnes to anyone interested in learning about Jewish life in Vilnius, then and now.

You will be given your language headphones for the 40 minute journey out. This is a very good summary of the Lithuania, why it has changed; why it kept changing the capital; etc. One of the best summaries I have come across. Trakai itself is very peaceful. This tour allows you to do it in your own time. We went on a boat trip around the main lake. The minibus delivers you, tell you to be back in 2.5 hours. Good trip. Well worth the money.

Pick up from the main square in a comfy mini bus. Only 3 of us on the tour and had an interesting commentary video played on the way there. Had 2 and a half hours free time to wander around the area and the castle which was enough time to take plenty of photos and get some delicious local traditional food.

4 hour trip to Trakai. Lovely little town set in beautiful lakes with an impressive castle set on an island. Great, relaxing trip, definitely recommend.

well managed, nice transport.pickup opposite to the vilnius bell tower and the audioguide was quite informative. Would recommend !!
