Its Constitution lists citizens’ many rights, such as ‘the right to have no rights’ and ‘the right to celebrate or not celebrate their birthday’. Named one of twenty-five global cities of the future, Vilnius combines its turbulent history with a creative contemporary culture which will intrigue and charm you.
