Vilnius – the Capital of Christmas

December is one of the most anticipated months of the year, when Vilnius turns into a festive fairy tale setting. A spectacular Christmas tree lights up the city, the streets are filled with the scent of Christmas gingerbread and decorations sparkle in our eyes.

You don’t have to go far to experience a cosy winter holiday. Create new Christmas traditions and let the festive capital be the backdrop for new discoveries. After all, Vilnius is a true Capital of Christmas. So don’t miss the opportunity to participate in events, look for gifts at Christmas markets, get on the holiday restaurant route, go ice skating at the festive open-air rink, admire the most beautiful Christmas tree in Europe and create wonderful memories!
If you don’t believe in miracles, Christmas is the perfect time to rediscover the magic of the holidays!

Christmas is Coming by Train

Get into the Christmas mood on your way to the capital! Every Friday and Saturday right up until the New Year, a festive train that is decorated and smells of Christmas will be making their way to Vilnius from Kaunas and Klaipėda. The Christmas aromas will be provided by Kvapų Namai.

The first trips will be to the Vilnius Christmas tree lighting ceremony on 27 November (Saturday). For those who want to get into the Christmas spirit during the trip, we recommend choosing seats in the middle of the train. We also suggest booking your train tickets in advance so you can have some peace of mind while waiting for your trip to our Christmas wonderland.
