Flights to Vilnius

Vilnius – a southern Baltic gem

The Lithuanian capital of Vilnius is like a history textbook, telling stories from distant medieval times right up to the present. Vilnius, onetime hub of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, lays proud claim to having the biggest old town in central Europe. Attractive parks, a bounty of surviving old architecture and hospitable people welcome visitors with open arms.

Kids & families

UNO Park

UNO Adventure Park in Vilnius is one of four in the country; it has both indoor and outdoor areas and all family members are welcome. The activities are designed separately for different age groups and there’s no need to fear – there’s plenty of fun to keep everyone busy for quite a while.

Vichy Water Park

Taking up four storeys of space in the city centre, and replete with many tubes, slides, pools and water attractions, Vichy is undoubtedly a family favourite. It’s one of Vilnius’s star attractions and the reason many come to the city. Besides various saunas and whirlpool baths, it caters to all ages.

NORDICA RECOMMENDS:
Bring flip-flops for walking between various attractions and a comfortable beach bag to tote your towel in.

Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania

The recently restored residence of the rulers of the onetime Kingdom of Poland and Grand Duchy of Lithuania is home to the National Museum, which we recommend visiting for everyone who comes to the city. The museum holds carefully selected, intriguing exhibits from both the country’s long history and the long-spanning restoration of the building itself.

NORDICA RECOMMENDS:
It’s a quick and cost-effective history lesson. For the price of just 3 Euros (for adults), visit all of the permanent exhibitions and enjoy the view of Vilnius from the tower.

Food, drink and nightlife

Lokys

Serving Lithuanian cuisine in the Old Town, Lokys is a tourist favourite. When visiting the restaurant, we recommend making a table reservation, or risk missing this trip back to the medieval ages accompanied by sumptuous fare.

Balzac

The flagship of influential French cuisine in our southern neighbour’s capital. We strongly recommend a meal at Balzac due to its deep respect for the traditions of French cuisine and the love and care it puts into preparing the dishes.

Shopping

Two big malls are located in central Vilnius – Panorama and Akropolis – and those with more time and interest in shopping should head for Outlet Park with more than 100 trademarks at prices up to half off.

Those inclined to shop at smaller boutiques are in luck - a walk down Vilnius’s delightful streets will turn up a great selection of locally-made crafts and art. We also recommend visiting the ceramic and handicraft shop and gallery in the Old Town called Amatų Gildija, Dom Bow Ties, design aficionados should call at the designer clothing and accessories shop Aukso Avis
.

WHEN YOU WALK THROUGH THE OLD TOWN OF VILNIUS, POP INTO THE CUTE LITTLE BOUTIQUES FOR A SELECTION OF LOCAL HANDICRAFT AND DESIGNER CLOTHING AND ACCESSORIES.

Transport

Public transport or Uber is recommended for getting around town. With the official taxi companies, fares can often be steep and routes circuitous. For travel beyond city limits, use the trains.

Buses and trolleybuses are in service from early morning to midnight, and night buses on selected routes operate at later hours. Tickets can be purchased for days at a time, down to a duration of half an hour. The Vilnius Card, designed for tourists’ needs, is convenient and well-priced.
