What are some interesting/fun things to do in the area? Can you recommend any “hidden gems"?
Outdoor sports: running/biking when it’s warm and cross-country skiing in winter. There are lots of spectator sports. There are surprisingly good art museums. The WWII museum is a must see. The philharmonic orchestra is also wonderful. Our family has enjoyed going to the circus and ballet. For little kids, there are several play-places located in the malls. The Aqua Park is a wonderful place for kids of all ages. There are also bowling alleys and movie theaters. There is usually at least one movie playing in English every weekend. There are so many “hidden gems” in and outside of the city if you are up for getting out and exploring. - Apr 2019
The Ballet, spending time with family either at home or in the parks, spending time with other expats you meet here, driving up to Vilnius to take advantage of all the stuff up there. - Oct 2011
