Transportation – Public transportation (e.g. bus, trolleybus) generally provides reliable, safe, and economical services. The bus service consists of a network of lines serving Vilnius and the suburbs. Additional urban transport systems include a transnational train system. I used the bus from the airport to the city center with for 1€ ticket.
Taxi and ride-hailing companies generally provide reliable, safe, and economical services. Avoid independent cabs that do not display a company name prominently.
Baltic Region, roads lead to Latvia from Lithuania, Estonia, and Belarus. It offers a good opportunity to visit the three Baltic States by car or Bus in one trip. I traveled to these countries by Lux Express.
Accommodation – A hostel dormitory bed starts around €10.
I stayed in The Mikalo House in downtown Vilnius. By staying there I can recommend it.
Other sites to plan and choose your accommodation might be Booking.com, Air BnB, Agoda, or Hostelworld. However, when you’re looking for a hostel, do your research, read reviews to get a feel for the place. and book somewhere that suits you
