Lithuania is an awesome little country tucked between Latvia, Russia, Poland and Belarus. It was our final destination in our Baltic State tour (you can also read about Estonia and Latvia) and it was another great destination.
It is a varied country with the countryside, the capital of Vilnius and the coastal area, particularly the Corinthian Spit, being the main destinations.
We spent some time in Vilnius and we loved it. It has a beautiful Old Town area and many attractions. It is just a nice place to hang out. Below you will find more information from out Lithuania travel blog.
It’s easy to get to Lithuania from neighbouring countries. There are buses and trains, although buses tend to be the easiest. It is also possible to fly to Lithuania from many locations.
Travelling to Lithuania from Latvia
Taking a bus is by far the easiest way to get between these two countries. We caught a Lux Express bus from Riga to Vilnius. This took just over four hours and is a very easy ride.
Lux Express is great with on board internet, free hot drinks (we loved the hot chocolate) and great seat back entertainment systems. We were all well entertained and the journey was fast.

There are lots of bus and train options to get you throughout the country. Travel is inexpensive and easy.
We had no problems travelling in Lithuania with kids. They were welcome and certainly not alone anywhere.
In Vilnius, there were often high chairs and colouring paper and pencils on offer. There are plenty of prams around and the ground is relatively flat for Europe so we had no problems pushing the stroller round the Old Town.
There are plenty of kid focused attractions and there were small playgrounds scattered around Vilnius.
There are plenty of top rate hotels in Lithuania, but we decided to take the cheaper and more spacious option and instead based ourselves in an Airbnb apartment. There are many in Lithuania and they are a bargain! If you don’t have an account yet, sign up with this link and we can both get US$25 credit :)
