Getting in and out
Vilnius is only a 3-hour flight from most European capitals, and Vilnius International Airport is a mere 15-minute drive from the City Centre.
Size really is everything; the airport itself is comfortably compact, meaning you are never stuck with an infuriating wait to get through departures or arrivals.
Currently, more than 15 airlines offer direct flights to more than 40 destinations from Vilnius International Airport.
Lithuania’s rail network offers a relaxing way to explore the country and the region.
Intercity trains are affordable and comfortable. Some have coffee machines, WiFi and convenient electrical outlets.
Lithuania's medieval capital Trakai, with its magnificent island castle and a multitude of activities in the vicinity, is only 30 minutes away. Kaunas, Lithuania's second-largest city, is about an hour by train. Trains from Kaunas connect to destinations in Poland. The trip to Minsk, the capital of neighboring Belarus, is about two hours and a half; Klaipėda and the Baltic coast are about four hours away; Kaliningrad is about six.
Tickets and schedules are available at the Railway Station or online. For online ticket purchases, a payment card issued by a Lithuanian bank is needed.
Buses are by far the most affordable mode of intercity travel. Conveniently located next to Vilnius Railway Station, Vilnius Central Bus Station connects to both domestic and international destinations.
Buses are comfortable, and long-distance buses and international journeys are fitted with bathrooms and refreshments. The price to get to Riga, the capital of neighboring Latvia, costs around €30 return and takes approximately four hours.
