Low cost airline Wizz Air are going to start flying from Glasgow to Lithuania in the autumn.
This route will provide a twice-weekly connection with Scotland and the Baltic state.
There is a route from Edinburgh to another airport, Lithuania’s second busiest airport in Kaunas but getting closer to the capital Vilnius is much more desirable for both business and pleasure.
Wizz Air who are based in Eastern Europe have operated a number of routes from Luton but as from 16th September the Glasgow route will start.
The Baltic states of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia are great places for tourism and with flight times of just less than 3 hours make their capital cities great for long weekends or city breaks.
Regattas and Rock
With events like The Baltic Tall Ships Regatta in Klaipeda in June or perhaps a Street Musicians Day event in Vilnius. A day when professional and amateur musicians come onto the streets and squares to play rock, classical, jazz or folk music.
Vilnius is an easy city for visitors and has a mobile app guide and therefore puts the whole city in your hands. The Vilnius Tourism City Guide is rather like having a local resident by your side as you discover the city. There is information about sightseeing, attractions, restaurants, cafés, hotels, shopping, night-life.
The city gained World Heritage Site status in 1994 it is well know for its lovely Old Town area and has been a European City of Culture in the recent past. With many parks, gardens and lakes in the city some of which even have sandy beaches which make them very attractive for summer visitors.
Vilnius Tourism City Guide is an offline function, so you will not get landed with a huge internet bill when you get back home. With a ‘Near Me’ function you can navigate through the city plus store all your ‘Favourites’ for later use.
