Kablys is the first indoor skatepark in Vilnius… and also Lithuania. Moreover it’s a harbor for a trendy B&B&B&B&B hostel, a cool bar/club and also a restaurant. The club hosts alternative events like music parties, stand up comedy shows etc. Kablys has brought the neighbourhood back to life and is always a fresh impetus for the locals.
For myself I consider this place to be a heritage of today’s urban Vilnius culture in the first place. Kablys has just a colossal exterior look (it was a Palace of railway workers before) and the inside of “the great hook” is even better in my opinion. Old interior details similar to ancient Roman times have been retained and refined with contrasting urban looks. And besides the visual goodies – the staff is always helpful and welcoming.
Kablys is a place where you can do a load of things – it all depends on your needs. However, it’s a must see on your own kind of place, even a thousand descriptions isn’t worth one visit. My recommendation – make that one visit and you won’t be disappointed.
