The first sight out of the hostel is the farmers market, consisting of all sorts of treats including dead animal carcasses lying in trailers and fruit and veg.
Vilnus has a really small relaxing vibe about it. I visited the three crosses hill and the Frank Zappa memorial.
The bunch at the hostel are pretty cool and all have pretty envious travel stories to tell. I ended up on some 8% beers and then some salty Liquorice Vodka that night that a Finnish girl had brought. I was pretty smashed by the end of the night.
The next day I booked my bus to Poland after having a sleep in and then headed to the 'Genocide of the Lithuanian People Museum' and a former KGB base. The place had a dramatic and thought provoking atmosphere that was heightened by a series of gruesome photographs of victims of war.
When it was time to leave I was a bit jealous as everyone was going out again.
