One of the most important cultural, historical, and religious monuments in Lithuania, the Gate of Dawn can be seen towering in Vilnius.

Legend has it that the Lithuanian Grand Duke Gediminas once had a dream that a large wolf stood on top of a hill where the Duke hunted and howled loud enough to be mistaken for a hundred wolves.

Visitors can go on a quick hike to get to the tower and explore the surroundings as well as the museum that is now housed inside the tower.

Ruined over the years, the structure was rebuilt, and it served as a school and theatre in the 19th century. It is famed for being the place where Adam Mickiewicz, a famed poet, dramatists, political activist, and professor of Slavic literature, studied. Today, visitors will find that even though the structure once again belongs to the Jesuits, there is a museum dedicated to Adam Mickiewicz and his life.
