This is largely due to the fact that low-cost airlines fly regularly to this European city. However, do not take Vilnius only as an intermediate point of your route.

Establishments for every taste, where you can study the achievements of Lithuanian breweries in an easy and relaxed atmosphere or just pass the time.

First of all, we advise you to study the assortment of the Nisha Craft Capital bar (L. Stuokos-Gucevičiaus g. 9).
