Vilnius TV Tower is the highest and one of a kind building in Lithuania. The construction of it started on 31 May of 1974 and was finished on December 30, 1980. The Vilnius TV Tower height is 362.5 m (1.071ft) and is located in the Karoliniškių district. The TV tower played a major role in the events of 13 January 1991, when 14 unarmed civilians lost their lives and 700 were injured opposing the Soviet military seizure of the tower so it plays a significant role in Lthuania‘s history. We offer to arrange excursions around Vilnius with or without guide.
