    • Palanga and the coast in late September/ beginning of October + car rental - pros and cons...

      Lithuania Aug 27, 2015 at 12:54 PM

      We'll be in Lithuania for a week, starting on September 27th. It's our first time there.
      Is it worth renting a car and driving up to the coast at this time of the year?

      Any recommendations and opinions regarding renting a car for a part of this trip (preferably convincing and well-explained opinions...) will be very much appreciated... Should we rent one? For how long (considering we do want to spend a few days in Vilnius and Trakai)? If we do rent a car - where should we go? (we're interested especially in nature and photography, less in history/religion).

      cut throat shave anywhere ?

      by meeson Online Now Dec 11, 2014 at 8:55 AM

      Hi vt'ers
      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.

      euros or litas jan 2015

      by meeson Online Now Oct 21, 2014 at 11:30 AM

      Hi vt'ers
      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

      Erasmus Student 2014/2015 questions

      by marrrija Online Now Aug 26, 2014 at 2:27 AM

      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. :)

      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.

      I think I can handle the stares, but I'm afraid of being attacked.

    • Two Dutch students on a partytrip to Vilnius

      by CheeseAndTulips Online Now Jun 19, 2013 at 7:19 AM

      Hi everybody, we're two Dutch students(both 19 years of age) from the Rotterdam University planning a trip to Vilnius in the second week of August 2013. Our plan is to fly from Eindhoven Airport(Netherlands) to Vilnius Airport and we would like to stay around 9 or 10 nights in hostels. Hope you can help us with the next things:

      I will try to get my mate with me to the KGB-museum, Church of St Peter and Paul and the televisiontower. ;)

      - Senamiestis is "The Old Town" right? Are most clubs and pubs located there or elsewhere?
      - Should we go on a trip to Riga? Tallinn is pretty far or is it worth the effort? Maybe Minsk?
      - How is the level of English speaking in Vilnius? Will the staff at restaurants or supermarkets understand you when you speak English?
      - How is the atmosphere in hostels?
      - How to travel in Vilnius? Can you walk the distances and what is the price level of cabs?
      - Best clubs in town?(Heard about Salento Disco Pub)
      - Any tips for us what to visit by day?

      Thanks in advance
      We're really looking forward to your answers

      On-line Boarding cards wanting to print off in Vilnius

      by suvanki Online Now Sep 13, 2012 at 12:09 PM

      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!
