      Hi everyone,

      I'm a black guy from UK, originally from West Africa, and will be travelling to Lithuania in a few weeks time. I'm just curious if Lithuania has problems with people of African decent and if I may experience any form of racism.

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

      I'm heading to Vilnius

      I'm a little worried and wanted to know anyone's experience of visiting or living there

      Many Thanks

    • 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!

      Apartments versus Hotels in Vilnius.. which is more fun?

      by Greatlookinguy Online Now Jun 30, 2011 at 4:04 AM

      Hi All,

      Two of my friends and I are planning to travel to Vilnius for a long weekend during end of August, and when looking around for accommodation we came across this site:

      My question is,.. are such apartments safe? Has anyone had any bad experiences of having paid online and then when you arrive there is no one there or things are delayed and/or not as promised?

      Would we be better off in a hotel, seeing as things are quite cheap anyways?

      We are three boys and the idea is to enjoy the culture by day and party by night. We thought with an apartment, if we made some local friends, we could bring them back to the apartment and have some house parties...

      Was told on another forum that most of these apartments, if not all of them, are normal, regular apartments with full time "regular" residents who may not take kindly to a lads weekend of party in the neighbouring flat.

      Anyone know of "holiday" specific self serviced apartments? ,..or at least a block where quite a lot of the apartments are for holidaymakers and short term lets?

      ...barring that, looks like a hotel is the best bet.

      Thanks in advance! :-)

      bus schedule

      by ohaiyo Online Now Feb 17, 2011 at 5:31 PM

      Hi Everyone,

      I've finally figured out my route for my trip in July. I'll start off in Vilnius and then take the bus to Riga and then take another bus to Tallinn. I've heard that there is no train between these cities anymore and that buses are more convenient. Is that true? If so, I'm wondering what bus company to use and what the bus schedule would be like. Are there buses between these cities everyday? How many hours would it take to go from one city to another? How much are the bus fares? Are there taxis outside these bus stations so I could go to my hotels from the bus stations?

      Thank you
