“There is a dreamy quality to Vilnius (vil-nyus), especially in the golden glow of a midsummer evening. Lithuania’s capital has an Old Town of rare authenticity: marvellously intact, its pebbly streets are lined with weather-worn period buildings that hide cafes, boutiques and dainty guesthouses.” – Lonely Planet
The easiest way to get here if you’re not traveling far is by bus. Check Lux Express or Ecolines for international routes. If you are looking for a something a little different you can also take a sightseeing bus from Riga that will make stops along the way and is a great way to see more than the average visitor.
Vilnius Airport is located a few km outside the city and offers multiple options to get into town. There are two public buses that run to the train station and the bus station. Each ride takes 20 minutes and costs up to €1. The Airport Train will take you to the train station in 8 minutes for less than €1. Tickets can be purchased at the ticket office or on board. Make sure to check the schedule as it runs less frequently than the buses. Mini buses run between the airport and the center and take up to 20 minutes for a price of up to €2 and as always there are taxis that will cost upwards of €20+.
