How far is it from Vilnius airport to Birzai and how much would it cost for the bus or taxi.
When I'm in Vilnius in Jan I will want to treat myself to a cut throat shave a barbers. Is there anywhere I can do this around Vilnius centre. I like to do this as you can't take razors on the plane in hand luggage and it's always a nice treat.
im off to Vilnius in January. do I need to take a thick winter coat. I will have jumpers and a jacket with me but seems as im staying in the centre and won't be walking much I don't really want to be saddled with a thick heavy coat when I'm out and about. it will be a pain when I go to the bars etc.
look forward to hearing your views

thanks in advance
I'm off to Vilnius on the 6th January. The euro comes in on the 1st Jan but I can use litas until 15th Jan. Should I take some euros or litas with me. I'm thinking about getting the best deal eg. food and drink. also will I only be able to get euros out of the banks once I am there.
I was thinking maybe take some litas then get euros out of the machine. I don't want to pay 2 euros for a beer when, if I pay in litas it might be half the price.
Its' a poser I know but would be nice to hear from seasoned travellers and what you have to say in respect of advice
I have read some pretty useful advice here about everything going on in Vilnius.But I would like to ask also about the costs of food, the dormitories and in general cost of life because I would like only to use my Erasmus scholarship while living there.
And also if there is anyone who is an erasmus student going these year , you can write me and we can get to know each other, it's really easier when you have a companion.I am from Macedonia and I am going there to study German Language and Literature. :)
Im off to Vilnius in januaury. im very much looking to it and would like to know the best things to do. I would also like to know what bars and clubs are good, I will be staying near the KGB museum so I am in a good location to see everything. im there for just over a week.
Hi to all,
I will be in Vilnius for two days and would like to visit Trakai.
Would like to learn what transportation is best (more important cheaper) to visit the above four places and other advised destinations?
Also would like to have local cuisine for dinner and perhaps have a break in a good pub or beer house.How is Belmontas restaurant?
But as you would appreciate, touristic places are quite expensive and not always the exact quality.
I prefer to investigate the city by myself and would be happy to hear all your advices.
Thank you all for your interest.

Hi! Flying Doncaster to Vilnius return.
Printed off boarding cards for outward journey, No problem, but for return journey, only allowed to print off 7 days prior to departure. (other airlines that I use regularly offer 15 day prior to departure service) so has never been a problem.
We fly out on Saturday, and return 7 days later, but don't have access to a printer, so will have to do this in Vilnius. ( I usually (sneakily) do this at work!
Stopping at Hotel Conti - will reception staff be able to print off boarding cards - if so, is there a charge, or is it usual to offer a tip? Or are there Internet cafes with printer service?
If so, can anyone tell me which ones.
Sorry, this is new to me, usually got all sorted before I depart, and not been to Lithuania before.
Don't want to have to pay hefty charges at airport for not having boarding card printed off for return journey, or stressing out trying to find where we can print off boarding card.
The other alternative is going into work on Saturday to do this as a last minute thing, which I prefer not to do ;-)
Any help appreciated!
