The hidden gem of Central Europe, Lithuania is a must-visit destination where fascinating history, rich heritage and vibrant culture come together. Whether it’s a weekend break in the spellbinding city of Vilnius, a romantic trip for two to scenic Kaunas or a sightseeing tour of historic Trakai, cheap flights to Lithuania make it possible to discover this country’s enchanting beauty and wonderfully unspoilt landscape.
Cheap flights to Lithuania are available throughout the year, so it’s simply a matter of picking the perfect time for you. The summer months are packed with festivals and activities, although prices tend to rise in June and July so it’s best to book early to get a good deal. A winter getaway is ideal, as prices dip and the country celebrates the Christmas season. Cathedral Square comes alive with twinkling lights and decorations in December while New Year’s is a two-day celebration with colourful fireworks and traditional music. In spring, Vilnius’ Book Fair is worth a visit for any book lover hoping to snap up a rare edition or take part in one of the many entertaining cultural events going on in the capital during this period.
Cheap flights to Lithuania are available from airports across the UK with a range of different services offered. If you’re flying from London, the best route is Luton to Vilnius, the iconic centre of Lithuanian culture, while flights can also take you to Kaunas, known for its stunning beauty, captivating history and the picturesque commercial district. Ryanair and Wizz fly to both destinations regularly at low costs with Ryanair also operating flights from Birmingham to Vilnius and between Bristol and Kaunas. The average length of these direct flights is just over two and a half hours.
Setting down in Vilnius, you’re only a hop, skip and a jump away from the historic city centre. A train departing from just outside the airport will take you to the heart of things for only €1 with a bus costing about the same. If you’ve got luggage, taxis in Vilnius are cheap and comfortable and can whisk you from the airport to Old Town, the city’s vibrant centre, for only €10. Kaunas Airport also has a low-cost bus service, and a taxi to the centre will only cost about €15.
One of the best ways to truly experience a new country is to sample its local cuisine. Try a kibinai, a meat-filled pastry which could be described as Lithuania’s answer to a Cornish pasty, or cepelinai, the country’s national dish. For the history buffs out there, take a stroll through Vilnius’ Old Town, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, while shopaholics can enjoy Kaunas’ Liberty Boulevard, a bustling district full of high-end shops and beautiful outdoor cafés where you can sit a while and fall under Lithuania’s spell.
