Sausio 13-osios St. 10,

Tel. 245 8877,

On the 13th of January, 1991, the Soviet troops and tanks surrounded the TV tower with the intention to occupy it. During the confrontation, 14 innocent civilians were killed. Today, the adjacent streets to the TV Tower are re-named to the names of those killed during the tragic events. In addition, a monument for the perished ones stands near the tower. Also inside the Tower, a small exhibition of pictures describing the events of that night is available. The total height of the entire TV Tower is 326.47 m. On sunny days, one may enjoy the beautiful panorama of Vilnius from the sightseeing site located in the height of 165 m.
