Lithuania: Travel and Accommodation

Lithuania’s main airport is Vilnius International, which has links to most major European cities as well as connections to the USA and beyond. A number of budget airlines fly to Lithuania from cities like London and Paris, with prices as low as €50 one way if you can be flexible with your travel times. If you are prepared to travel to a different airport, such as Kaunas, outside of the capital, then you could have more choice and even lower fares. Airlines such as Lufthansa and SAS fly to Lithuania from the United States, via European hubs such as Berlin and Heathrow.

Lithuania is between 2 and 3 hours flying time from most Western European cities, and anything from 9 to 12 hours from the USA. Its Northern European location makes it an arduous trip by any other means such as train or road if you are coming from France, Germany the UK or Spain.

Travelling within Lithuania is easy, with a modern infrastructure of roads and some rail links. Major roads linking the towns tend to be four lane dual carriageways, and there is also an extensive motorway network. Most of Lithuania’s rail network is used for freight, although it will host part of the Rail Baltica line, which when complete will link Germany and Poland in the west, via the Baltic states, to Finland.

Accommodation is cheap and plentiful, with new boutique hotels opening to meet the demand from European weekend tourists. Rooms start from as little as €60 per night. There are also numerous smaller guest houses, especially in the old towns, where the warm Baltic hospitality can be more genuinely felt. Holiday apartments in Lithuania can be found for as little as €40 per night. Eating out is incredibly cheap and wherever you stay, don’t miss the Cepelinai, a local delicacy of potato dumplings packed with cheese, meat or mushrooms.
