For A TOURIST – for your arrival needs in Lithuania

Before coming to Lithuania

Where is Lithuania? How to reach it?

There are many debates on where is the geographical centre of Europe, different opinions are based on different measurements, but one of the places is called Bernotai or Purnuškės, and it is close to the capital of Lithuania, Vilnius.
Some brave people come to Lithuania in not that ordinary way (by plane, train, car, bus…), for example, some do it by bike, like Wouter from Belgium …

Why to choose Lithuania? 7 reasons at least:

  1. Be original! Everybody goes to Spain, Italy, Greece.. - choose something different!
  2. Because of snow and white Christmas (especially for people coming from the southern countries).
  3. It is not completely “westernized” yet, and with some soviet trace.
  4. Even a student “budget” is enough for travel and stay here.
  5. There are many interesting places to see!
  6. To find out on your own what Lithuania is about, instead of listening to others.
  7. To meet all other strangers you decided to come here too.

What are Lithuanians like?

The recent news say that Lithuanians are ambitious, though still naive in some sense. Earlier the common description of Lithuanians was: modest, stubborn, naive farmers. Lithuanians are a bit superstitious about: number 13, black cat on the road, full moon, broken mirror.

Where to stay? What is the reasonable price and conditions?

The accommodation is not cheap in Lithuania, especially in good hotels, like “Kaunas”, “Best Western Santaka” or “Daniela”, the overnight stay is from 350 Lt/night, middle-class guest houses or hotels like “Apple Economy Hotel” – from 135 Lt/night, a quite cheap stay though not in the center - "Sporto centras", you could get a single room for only 70Lt/night. Private accommodation is available too, you can book it via realty-estate agency. Non-contract flat/room rent offers are listed in classifieds of the local newspapers.

Arrival and stay in Lithuania

Airport pick-up service

You could be met upon arrival to Vilnius airport or Kaunas Karmėlava airport and taken to the hotel or other place of stay. English speaking driver – information and ride all in one.

How to travel around?

Hitch-hiking is quite popular among young Lithuanians, but it is not recommended for girls to travel alone. Buses are the most convenient way, though, be sure to catch the last bus around 7 p.m., the transport to the countryside is not that frequent. Trains are rather slow and uncomfortable. Car rent is available at the airport and in major cities. The country roads are not adjusted for bikers, also there is no existing biking-lane in city.
