Lukiškės Prison in Vilnius
People who book a stay at Lukiškės Prison can also go on a guided tour of the grounds, have a glimpse at once real prison life and walk through the exact show’s shooting spots—the corridors, the fenced courtyard, and other hidden corners.
Season 4 which premieres on May 27th, was filmed in different locations around Vilnius together with local partners Baltic Film Services, Baltic Locations, and Vilnius Film Office. The most notorious of the locations—Lukiškės Prison—ceased to function as an imprisonment facility in 2019, and the building was restructured and turned into Lukiškės Prison 2.0— a hub for artists and a venue for exclusive music, art, and other events. This summer the facility will host a number of outdoor events and an international music event 8 Festival.
The cell will start welcoming visitors from June 4th and reservations through Airbnb are already available here.
