Walk the ancient streets of Vilnius old town, where Lithuanian Jewish history can be traced back to the 14th century.
The classic Lithuanian Jew (Litvak) is known in folklore for a love of education, no-nonsense straight-talk and certain sardonic wit. Jews were settled in Vilna, as the capital was and still is known in Jewish culture from around the time of its founding in 1323.
By the 18th century Vilna had become the world capital of traditional religious (Talmudic) learning, often referred to as the Jerusalem of Lithuania, or Jerusalem of the North. Towering over the many great Jewish figures the city has produced, is Gaon of Vilna.
Today a small community of 5,000 or so Litvaks makes bold efforts to maintain its heritage.
Visit the Old town of Kedainiai - an impressive and historically unique place. Kedainiai is one of the oldest towns in Lithuania. In 1372 it was first mentioned in Livonian Chronicle by Hermann Wartberge.
According to the legend, the name of Kedainiai originated from a wealthy merchant Keidangen who had moved here from Kursas and established a small fishermen's village. Kedainiai was famous as a town of many nations, confessions and cultures.
Walking along the
narrow streets of the Old Town of Kedainiai you can admire magnificent
history. On the way back you will visit the old town of Kaunas.
