Map

Must see

Vilnius Cathedral / Gediminas Castle Tower - Vilnius Catheral has an interesting style composed of columns and Gediminas Castle Tower was my favorite stop in Vilnius. You walk up a giant cobblestone hill to have a view of the entire city!

 

Literatai Street / Senamiestis (old town) - Literatai Street is a street dedicated to literature through street art. Senamiestis is really enjoyable to just walk around.

Gates of Dawn - a unique religious site and entrance to the city

CURRENCY

The official currency is the Euro, but I had no problem paying by credit card.

Local TRANSPORTATION

I walked all over Vilnius and used my hotel shuttle to go into the heart of the city. Busses are also an option.

FOOD

There were all kinds of food in Lithuania. I had a great burger!

PLUGS / ADAPTERS

Lithuania uses European plug types C and F.

VISA REQUIREMENTS

Lithuania is a member of the Schengen Agreement. This means that U.S. citizens can visit Lithuania for up to 90 days without a visa.

SAFETY

I felt very safe throughout my entire time in Lithuania.

SHould you Visit?

Yep! I had a great time in all three Baltic states and Lithuania was no exception. The entire country was beautiful from the countryside to the heart of Vilnius. It definitely seemed smaller compared to Riga or Tallinn but there was still a lot to see and do! The Baltic countries are much less frequented by tourists than Western Europe but are definitely worth visiting.
