Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, is not that far from Bratislava, but getting there by plane may be an expensive challenge. On the other hand, a day-long bus journey may discourage people from travelling there.

Lithuanian student Ugnė Mažonaitė and American Anna Fay, who have experienced both of the capitals, talk about what these cities have in common and where they differ.

Listen to this week's episode:

What is Plus Plus Plus and why is it worth a visit in Vilnius? In which capital can people enjoy more parks? Where can you stumble upon an independent republic within the city? And where should you look for kibinai, saltibarsciai and cepelinai?

Press play and discover out more about Bratislava, and most importantly, about Vilnius. Which capital is going to win the battle?
