Lithuania. How to get there and move. Plug. Documents, custom. Phone


A country that boasts over 800 years of history and tradition, with a strong cultural identity.
Splendid cities, extraordinary architecture and unique and romantic landscapes.
Lithuania is a land to discover and a journey to these places, it is difficult to forget.


Vilnius international airport is the reference point for air connections with the country. The capital is well connected, with direct flights, with numerous European destinations, and the main capitals.
Kaunas is a great alternative, a real base for the low-cost airline RyanAir.
Those who want to reach the north of the country can consider the possibility of landing at Riga airport and continuing by train or car.

By train, it is preferable to arrive exclusively from Minsk and Moscow, connected with the capital. In addition, two trains depart for Warsaw each week.
The bus is an economic alternative, which takes a long time to move. Eurolines, Ecolines, Lux and Polski Bus are some of the companies that offer excellent value for money bus connections. Also in this case, however, the solution is preferable starting from the Eastern countries.

The car is a fascinating and suggestive hypothesis, ideal for crossing the Via Baltica from Warsaw to Tallin.



Within the individual cities, and in particular in the major tourist centers, public transport is quite reliable and efficient.
To move between the various centers and points of interest of the country, the terno is the most used solution, thanks to the low costs and to the fairly efficient service. The public company Litrail offers connections between the major centers of Lithuania. A trip from Vilnius to Kaunas, for example, costs just over € 5 per person.

Intercity and regional buses are a great way to save money. The capital offers regional connections with numerous Lithuanian centers.
By car and, as mentioned, along the Via Baltica, you drive really well. The motorways, in particular, are reliable and regular maintenance. The A1 is the main highway of the country, over 300km long. The biggest problems, however, are found in rural areas: the roads are often dangerous, and the Lithuanian driving style is not exactly the best.


Lithuania joined the Schenghen Agreements; therefore, for citizens of European countries adhering to this Agreement, there is no obligation to produce documents at the border; you are always required to bring an Identity Card or passport with you. It is recommended, above all, to bring the C.I. of their minor children, even if you travel by car or train. Consult our special section in this regard.
Dogs and cats enter freely, provided they have a health record and a recent certificate from the ASL residence veterinarian, attesting to good health. Dogs must have been vaccinated against rabies for at least 21 days.
Please note that the appropriate microchip must be applied to the animals. On public transport, animals must travel with a muzzle.
To fly with animals, please consult the section on individual airlines.


The official Lithuanian currency is the Euro. From 1 January 2015 it replaced the old Lithuanian Litas (LTL).

Now, almost everywhere, you can pay by credit card directly and withdraw cash at ATMs. Keep in mind, however, that in some small towns, and less touristy places, you may find it difficult to make payments by credit card. A cash reserve is always recommended.
