Our Tips for Lithuania Holidays

Flights to Lithuania from the UK are available to a number of destinations within the country. If you're looking for a city break a direct flight to Vilnius will get you to the capital in under three hours and thanks to the fact low-cost carriers Ryanair and Wizz Air serve the route, flights booked in advance can be pretty cheap. You can also fly directly to Kaunas with Ryanair or indirectly to Palanga. If you're heading to the coast during the peak summer months, it's advisable to book a hotel in Lithuania as far in advance as possible to get the best rates and secure a place to stay.

What to Do in Lithuania

Vilnius boasts a pretty Old Town complete with cobbled streets and cafe-lined avenues and is just one of the highlights of any holiday in Lithuania. Home to many a medieval church and a splendid gothic cathedral, the capital may be small but it offers plenty to see and do. Famed for its forests and lakes, Aukstaitija is a must for nature lovers and the perfect place to relax and enjoy boating, walking and hiking in the hills. Party-goers head to the coastal resort of Palanga to dance the night away in its many bars and clubs before heading back to their hotels in Lithuania, while the Curonian Spit, with its sand dunes and blue flag beaches, is a very popular summer holiday spot for families.
