Vilnius



Vilnius is the capital and largest city of Lithuania. The city as the Lithuanian capital was first mentioned in written sources in 1323. In 1387, Jogaila (1362 – 1434), Grand Duke of Lithuania and King of Poland, granted Magdeburg rights to the city. In 1994, the Old Town of Vilnius was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The current area of the city is 402 square kilometres (155 sq mi). Buildings occupy 29.1% of the city; green spaces occupy 68.8%; and waters occupy 2.1%. Although Vilnius is known as a Baroque city, there are examples of Gothic, Renaissance, and other styles.
