"The Garden of Ideas" is great if you need to relax or meet friends in the Old Town of Vilnius. It's unique because every bench has its own story...

If you are tired after long walks around the city, you need to relax, or you want to meet your friends, you should definitely visit the Garden of Ideas, which is located in the Old Town of Vilnius.

I can't imagine any town or city without a park. Moreover, Lithuania is known as one of the greenest countries in Europe (!). But why is this park unique? The Garden of Ideas is not only a recreational place, but also a space for valuable conversations, meetings, meditation and development of innovative ideas. It is a perfect place for inspiration because every single bench has its own story - you can find quotes on them.

ISM University of Management and Economics is located in the historic ensemble of Basilian Monastery. This architectural ensemble is a unique reflection of the cultural and natural heritage with a respectful reference to the history of Lithuania and Eastern Europe. In the south of the ensemble there's the Basilian Monastery garden which has been there for ages. Recreation of the GARDEN of IDEAS in 2014 is ISM Students' Association and ARVI enterprises' group's gift to the city of Vilnius.

The Garden of Ideas was opened on the 15th May 2014.

Enjoy this amazing oasis in the Old Town of Vilnius!
