Vilnius Gediminas Technical University is a leading higher education institution in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania. Established in 1956, VILNIUS TECH is one of the most prominent research universities in Lithuania, focusing on technologies, engineering and prioritising university-business cooperation. The university is a member of the Advanced Technology Higher Education Network Alliance – ATHENA European university.
Vilnius is the capital of Lithuania and its largest city. The first written record of Vilnius as the Lithuanian capital is from Gediminas’ letters in 1323.
Today, Vilnius is one of the most frequently visited cities in Eastern Europe. It draws attention not only because of its unique architectural character but also by its cultural events and attractions. During the first ten years of independence, the city has become a tourist attraction centre. It is therefore not surprising that during these ten years, the number of tourists has consistently increased while tourist infrastructure and services have been developed.
