Hi, Here is some info for travelers in Vilnius!

airport:

6km from the centre

The buses that are available at the airport:

    * Bus line no. 1 - Vilnius Airport – Vilnius Central Station
    * Bus line no. 2 - Vilnius airport - City Center - Šeškinė (the north of the city)

Taxi's are mostly 1,25 LT / If you pick a waiting cab you pay an additional 5 LT. So It's better to call even if they are just in front of you. (phonenumber is written on the taxi's) I know, it's sounds silly, but trust me.


Information centre

The best information center you can find in the city hall (didzioji square). It's a seperate entrance

Uzupis

This is the artist district. It's a cosy part of the town and well-know.

bars & clubs

A nice international bar is "Cafe du paris" owned by a french guy. It's in Pilies Street.

A nice club is "Woo" with lots of parties.

A rockbar is Pogo baras. They have often free concerts. It's in Vilniaus Street 12.

The club which has a lot of stereotype beautiful girls is "Prospekto" in Gedimino Street.

Also a really nice service organization is www.partyinvilnius.com They offer different day-time activities and guided nightlife with a hostess that takes you to the nicest spots in town. (You can also book accomodation through them)(They also have a list with countries that fly to Vilnius and the airports)

restaurants

If you want to eat rather cheap and local dishes. There is a chain called Chili Kaimas. I think normal dishes are between 10 and 30-40 LT (3- 10 EUR)

For people who like a kebab/pita in a "normal" way: There is one in Traku Street 15.

If you want to each a national dish. Ask for "Zeppeliniai" or zeppelins. Standard with sour cream, but you can ask other sauces.

Also really nice is the "pink soup". It's a cold beet soup. It looks strange when you see it, but really tasty!

Accomodation

hostels/B&B/cheap hotels : http://www.hostels.com/lt.vi.html

For all hotels you can go to www.tripadvisor.com > hotels > vilnius



I hope it's useful. Enjoy the city, It's a wonderful one!

Vilnius is the city noted for its remarkable architecture and cultural life. What is entrancing about the architecture of Vilnius is the variety of styles which collide, for instance, baroque, classicism and gothic which prevails in the Old Town. The most popular and favourite places of locals and tourists are Vilnius Cathedral, The Town Hall Square, Gate of Down, the Tower of Grand Duke Gediminas. Furthermore, the city is appreciated for a great number of churches, one of which had even captivated Napoleon Bonaparte, military and political leader of France, who wanted to carry The Church of Saint Anne to Paris. Another feature which characterizes the capital is the active cultural life which includes a wide range of events concerning music, theatre, cinema, visual arts and literature. If you would like to find out more, check the local travel guide <snip> I found it useful as you can paln your own trip according to your interests and time for visit! Enjoy Lithuania
