It is difficult to say in what genre or direction he plays his music, however this will be one of the most unusual leisure options in Vilnius.

How else can you spend your leisure time in Vilnius?

If you do not have time to get to any event or you did not like it, then do not rush to get upset and get home. In Vilnius, recently opened a new museum of modern art MO Muziejus. The opening took place on October 18, 2018. The museum has collected more than 5,000 works by local artists. The building is located at Pylimo g. 17. The museum regularly hosts new exhibitions on a variety of subjects, now there is an exhibition “Animal-Human Robot”. Among the thousands of exhibits, you will surely find something that can give you a vivid feeling: sadness, joy, surprise, anger.

In my opinion, this is a great alternative to a failed campaign at a concert or food festival. In addition, a visit to the museum may not be a substitute, but an addition to your leisure in Vilnius. This is only your choice!
