Vilnius is the real Baroque beauty of the Baltic. Its Old Town is the largest one in Europe and will impress you with beautiful buildings. Vilnius is, also, a city full of Orthodox and Catholic churches spread over the town. Today it is a modern city which tries to combine history and future by introducing an international cuisine and modern skyscrapers.
The Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Vilnius you must visit, along with the Presidential Palace and the Vilnius University. There are many beautiful churches in Vilnius, and we suggest visiting the Basilica of St. Stanislaus & ST. Ladislaus, also known as Vilnius Cathedral, St. Anne’s Church, Bernadine Church & Monastery and Church of Sts. Michael & Constantine. To learn more about the history of the country, visit the National Museum, the Museum of Genocide Victims and the Jewish Museum.
Public Vilnius transportation
Public transport in Vilnius includes the bus and trolleybus network. It operates from 5:00 to 00:00. The buses cover every corner of the city, even the remote suburbs. They are efficient and will take you to any part of Vilnius. Trolleybuses, on the other hand, are more frequent and operate on the busiest routes.
The intercity bus transportation is widely used, and Vilnius has direct bus links with the other cities in Lithuania. The Vilnius train and bus stations are located next to each other in the Naujamiestis district. Although there are regular railway links from Vilnius, they are slower than the buses but cheaper.
To rent a car in Vilnius is an excellent transportation alternative and makes sense if you wish to explore the nearby area. Many tourists prefer to organize day trips to Druskininkai, Elektrenai, Trakai, Ukmerge or Varena.
The Lithuania taxi service, especially in the capital, has a bad reputation since the taxi drivers try to rip off tourists very often. Even if you decide to negotiate the price, you still may be overcharged.
Vilnius International Airport is the largest one in Lithuania according to passenger traffic. It is 6 km south of Vilnius, and it’s relatively easy to organize your airport transfer.
Vilnius airport transfer options
Public transport is the cheapest option to get from Vilnius International to the city centre, especially for solo travellers. There is a direct railway link from the city centre to Vilnius airport and the travel time is only 7 minutes. The railway stop is next to the passenger terminal.
There are regular bus lines from the airport to Vilnius and other cities in Lithuania, as well as the neighbouring countries. To get to Vilnius city centre or the Old Town from the airport, you can take the buses No. 3G and 88. There are also international bus lines from Minsk and Riga.
