Lighting the Vilnius Christmas Tree is an annual tradition for us in the Lithuanian capital and a sign that the festive season has truly arrived in the city. On the evening of December 1st, 2017, Christmas season has officially started in Vilnius as the main Christmas Tree was lit at the Cathedral Square.
Last year’s Vilnius had one of the most beautiful Christmas Trees in the world, thus this year Lithuania’s Capital had again prepared a huge surprise for all citizen and city’s guests –spectacular Christmas Tree illuminated with more than 70,000 light bulbs and traditional ‘Christmas Town’ surrounding the Christmas Tree in the center of the square. This year’s Christmas tree has an amazing height of 27 meters and 2700 Christmas toys on it!
