Historic Importance of the Vilnius TV Tower

For locals, the Vilnius TV Tower is more than just a notable landmark; it’s also an important symbol of resistance. In 1991, during Lithuania’s fight for independence from the Soviet Union, crowds of unarmed Lithuanian civilians turned out to protect the TV tower from being taken over by Soviet troops. The ensuing events saw 14 civilians lose their lives and more than 700 injured. Today, a memorial and exhibition is dedicated to them, located on the ground floor of the tower.
