Established in May 1997, the Vilnius Festival brings the best in classical music from across Europe and beyond to the Lithuanian capital. With a dozen concerts and productions, it has become one of the mainstays of the city's annual programme. Besides the Argentines and the French, the Lithuanians are also known for their killer tango.
The annual Baltic Tango Festival in Vilnius in June is the perfect place to watch this passionate dance. Capital Days (Sostines dienos) is the official festival of Vilnius and the most spectacular fiesta in the city. Established in 1993, the open-air event takes place in squares and parks throughout the city, in particular Cathedral Square and Vingis Park.
