Up early to catch my flight. On arrival at Vilnius, I got a taxi to the hotel, settled in and then went for a walk in the old town. Very interesting with lots to see. Went back to the hotel, had a rest and then back to the old town for dinner at a local fare restaurant- very good restaurant, loads of atmosphere and all locals there. Great food and cheap.
Got up this morning and it was hooning it down. So had breakfast and went back to bed....
Got up when it had stopped and went for a wander around Vilnius. Headed of the the Genocide Museum, the genocide being the amount of Lithuanians killed by the Russians...It's a large building that was the KGB HQ and it has a prison in the basement.
Left Minsk at 11 am today with a vicious hangover.....had a great time in Belarus, I recommend it if you're ever in that part of the world.

TravelPod Member ReviewsGrata Hotel Vilnius
The hotel gave me a room on the first floor in the older part of the building (room 105), which was okay, but pretty basic. This room didnt have a computer, but there was WiFi for an additional 6EUR per day or so. The hotel is not bang in the centre, but short walk down the hill, say 10 minutes or so (and 15 back).
