About Lithuania

For centuries Lithuania acted as a buffer zone between Germany to the west and Mongols and Tartars to the east.

Lithuania is the southernmost of the Baltic States, and the largest, with a range of attractions which will appeal to even the most world-weary traveller.

Vilnius

The capital of Lithuania is located on the Neris River, in the south-east of the country.

Gedimin chose Vilnius as the capital of the principality of Lithuania in 1323.

Lithuania was united with Poland in 1569, and incorporated into the Russian Empire in 1795.

Vilnius had a large Jewish population until Nazi Germany occupied the town during World War II.

Visiting Vilnius

Vilnius is easy to explore on foot, with numerous little courtyards and tiny cobble-stoned back streets to explore - or you can take the weight off your feet at one of the many great outdoor cafes.

The old city contains the ruins of a 14th-century castle and numerous churches dating from the 16th and 17th centuries.

Many festivals are held in Vilnius, throughout the summer months, and the old Soviet-style opera house offers quality performances (at unbelievable cheap prices) any time of the year.

Autorenta Vilnius:
Autorenta was established in 1998, offering passenger car rental services in the Republic of Lithuania and all other Baltic States.

Grotthuss Boutique Hotel:
Located on a cobble-stoned street in the heart of the old town of Vilnius, within walking distance of all the major points of interest.

Vilnius Airport:
The Airport is built on the plateau in the south of Vilnius, 7km or 15 minutes driving time from the centre of the capital city.

There are buses every 15 minutes: Bus No 1 runs between the airport and the railway station and bus No 2 travels through the city centre to the outskirts at Šeškine.

There are also a number of minibuses that travel out to Santariškes (No 15), Fabijoniškes (No 20), Šeškine (No 23) and Pašilaiciai (No 47).

Vilnius Sightseeing:
The Lithuanian capital's first period of growth took place immediately south of today's Cathedral Square, eventually becoming the jumble of Baroque, Gothic, Neoclassical and Renaissance architecture now known as Old Town.
