"Comrads, we are so focused on our search for truth we fail to consider how few actually want us to find it." And the truth is that HBO's Chernobyl was filmed right here in Vilnius and this apartment is located in the heart of the neighborhood that acted as Pripyat. Not only the location is unique but the apartment itself is an ode to soviet life - from the plates you eat from to the beding you sleep in, it's as authentic and unique as it was back in the USSR!

The space
My grandparents lived here for over 40 years - they loved this place & looked after it really well, that's why now it looks and feels stuck in time for 30 years.
The space is a mix of old and new, keeping the original apartment planning and encompassing soviet design elements, magazines, vinyls, books and appliances, like Lithuanian potato grating machine (which won design award back in the USSR and was exhibited in the national gallery!) By the way, it works, so you are welcome to give it a go and make traditional Cepelinai or Potato pancakes, recipes provided.
Bathroom was recently refurbished and more modern technology like wifi router or kitchen appliances are hidden out of sight for you to experience the life of the soviet citizen with Western comfort.

We love this place - its crazy unique! It has been built in the USSR days and is part of the socialist living utopia. When we stay in the flat, we love to take long walks around the neighborhood - it's an urban jungle! Also, when you're visiting we highly recommend rewatching Chernobyl for the immerse real life experience!

I'm a travel photographer and Chernobyl and soviet design fan! Together with my girlfriend we turned my grandparents flat into a world famous soviet designed apartment just inside Fabijoniškės. I'm from Vilnius myself, born in USSR, grew up in the free country of Lithuania and studied photography in London.
