Beer guide in Vilnius

The capital of Lithuania annually attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists from the CIS countries and Europe. This is largely due to the fact that low-cost airlines fly regularly to this European city. However, do not take Vilnius only as an intermediate point of your route. In our opinion, the city deserves a more careful and substantive study. Vilnius is especially good on summer evenings. Especially for you, we have selected more than 15 (!) Establishments for every taste, where you can study the achievements of Lithuanian breweries in an easy and relaxed atmosphere or just pass the time.

First of all, we advise you to study the assortment of the Nisha Craft Capital bar (L. Stuokos-Gucevičiaus g. 9). This small bar is located on the ground floor of a residential building, directly opposite the Church of the Holy Cross.
