According to the legend, Grand Duke Gediminas had a dream of an Iron Wolf hauling on a high hill. A pagan priest interpreted the dream, that the Iron Wolf represents a castle and a city – the capital of Lithuanian lands and the glory of the city will be heard throughout the world.
The top of Tauras Hill provides a magnificent view of Vilnius with the buildings of the 19-20th architecture on this side of the river and many-storeyed buildings of the new city centre on the other. The hill is girded by the bustling Pamėnkalnio Street.
Tauras Hill is a popular place among citizens, especially young people. School-leavers often come here to meet the sunrise after their graduation party and romantic people climb the hill to admire sunsets and the city by night. In winter time, people come here with snowboards and sleds.
Konrad’s cell was opened in Vilnius in 2009. The monastery cell where the poet Adam Mickiewicz was imprisoned has been named after the hero of his poem “Konrad Wallenrod”. There are two expositions: one is installed as an imitation of a prison cell, and the other one consists of photo-stands displaying the information on Adam Mickiewicz’s life in Vilnius, the case of Philarets and the Philomaths.
The current exposition of Konrad cell only symbolically marks the location of Konrad cell that stirred so much discussion during the inter-war period. It is known that Adam Mickiewicz was imprisoned in the Bazillion cloister turned into prison at that time in 1823-1824. Having bribed the guards close friends used to gather in the poet’s cell. Adam Mickiewicz described these events in Chapter II of this poem “All Souls’ Day” created in 1832.
Maintenance of Konrad cell has been entrusted to Adam Mickiewicz museum of Vilnius University library.
The exposition is open for visitors daily, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Aušros Vartų st. 7A
In 2003 the hand of artist and designer Lijana Turskytė turned the gypsum 300 kg egg, which is erected on the granite column, into an Easter egg, bringing a touch of spring to the capital city and brightening the view for the passerby.
Today the Easter egg signifies the restoration and revival of this part of the Old Town.
It is said that in the 11th-12th century, one of the oldest castles in Lithuania used to stand on the 40-metre-high Rokantiškės hill.
The castle hill gives a wonderful view of the Vilnia Valley. The Kučkuriškės Paper Mill established in the 19th century (technical monument), the old river dam, the ponds, and the Naujoji Vilnia settlement founded in the 19th century after the construction of the Vilnius to St Petersburg railway line may be seen on one side, while the sleep banks of the Vilnia River and a hilly area overgrown with fir trees lay on the other.
