The Lithuanian Radio and Television Center, which manages the TV towers, plans to invest up to 15 million euros into the reconstruction in 2021-2024.

"The TV tower has become a symbol of not only Vilnius but also of the whole of Lithuania, linked to the January 13 events. A reconstructed tower would attract more visitors and city guests, and it could also provide more services. That’s the goal we are setting for the enterprise," Transport Minister Marius Skuodis said in a statement.

Over 120,000 people on average visit the Vilnius TV tower every year, and the number is expected to grow to 200,000 after the reconstruction.
