Be sure to visit the only synagogue in Vilnius and also the Jewish Museum about a mile away on the same street, where there is a room dedicated to the Righteous Gentiles. Before WW2 there were over 100 synagogues, and now there is only one.
Former Gestapo/KGB prison from the 1940s to 1990.
The prison downstairs is still intact and makes for grim viewing.
One interesting point is that while the building was controlled by the Gestapo between 1941 - 1944 from where they ran the Holocaust in Lithuania with their Lithuanian accomplices, very little coverage is given to this in the museum.
Still an essential part of your visit to Vilnius.

A church that is really stunning, even for those who get a bit jaded by Orthodox churches. Restored after the Soviets left, as so many are, the colours are bright and fresh but I won't say any more or it will spoil the surprise.
Close to the Gates of Dawn, on the southern side of the old city. Look for the big entrance gate on the east side of the road.
