CNN has announced the list of top 12 world’s most spectacular Christmas trees, with Vilnius tree named as number one.

CNN writes: “The well-preserved old town in the Lithuanian capital looks like just the sort of place that needs a Christmas tree. Now it’s got one – in fact, at 25 meters, the tallest Christmas tree in the Baltics.

“Well, “tree” – it’s actually a metal skeleton covered with fir tree branches. Lithuanian fir tree branches, though – they’re not made in China,” reports CNN.

The rest of Christmas trees in the world that were named by CNN as the most spectacular are: Lego Christmas tree in Malaysia,  Rockefeller Center Christmas tree in New York; Galeries Lafayette Christmas tree in Paris; Floating Christmas tree in Rio de Janeiro; National Christmas tree in Washington, D.C.; Brandenburg Gate Christmas tree in Berlin; Macaroon Christmas tree, Ritz-Carlton in Charlotte, North Carolina; Umbrella tree, Goring hotel in London; Opera Christmas tree, Grand Hotel de Bordeaux & Spa in Bordeaux, France; Fendi Christmas tree, Hotel de Russie in Rome, Italy; and Recycled bottle Christmas tree in London.

So well done Vilnius………and with the worlds most beautiful cathedral at the side of the tree what more could the citizens of Vilnius ask for?
