Located on the southeast of Vilnius city center, this structure is within walking distance from the Gates of Dawn. You could see a downhill view of the eastern part of Vilnius city. A nice structure with a good view.

I really enjoyed these place because it was ice weather and we did not need too much time to climb there, and enjoy the beautiful view, it is also nice to see Vilnius at night.

Artillery Bastion is situated at Boksto 20/18 and is on the edge of the Old Town. Constructed as part of the city defences in the 17th century. Worth a visit.

This is a great bastion, or city defense wall. It's nicely preserved and restored where necessary. Certainly worth a visit while in Vilnius!

Great large bastion along what was the city wall of Vilnius. The bastion is in a very large park on the edge of the old town and has many paths through out the park. The bastion overlooks the Vilnia River.
