About Vilnius Playground

Hello. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll stay here for a while and explore Vilnius with me. Here you can find stories of where locals like to eat, shop, stay, and play in the capital. 

Vilnius Playground is also where I capture my daily chronicles and invite people to share their stories. Think about it as a corner dedicated to the soul-filled things in everyday life that make me, and hopefully you, happy.


After living abroad for almost ten years, one day, I packed up my things and moved back to my beloved hometown. All in the pursuit of seeing what it would be like to live here, in Vilnius, as an adult.

As you might have guessed, I do have a thing for travelling. And I still haven’t found a cure for it. So meanwhile, I use the blog to share my ways of rediscovering the city and chasing wanderlust.

What are my passions? Quaint cafés and Sunday brunches. Pinot noir and heart-to-heart conversations. Art Nouveau and singing cheesy ballad songs when no one’s listening.

But above all, it’s storytelling, and Vilnius is my playground. So, would you like to join me?
