Cosy. Colourful. Full of culture and life. Romantic and engaging. Vilnius is all this and much more. So if you are looking for a respite from routine or a fresh breath of inspiration, Vilnius welcomes you.
Rich in spirit and a trove of hidden treasures, Vilnius is a city that entices and invites you to explore it all day and all of the night. From the mysterious courtyards of the Old Town and the sculptures that inhabit them, to the city’s melting pot of architecture styles, and the multitude of green spaces that are scattered liberally throughout the city, Vilnius offers much to explore during the day, while at night the city comes alive with the buzz of the downtown’s many bars. And it is here, in the small hours that strangers become friends. Vilnius is not a city that you can plan for. It is a city to be experienced and a city to love.
If you’ve got a heart that’s open to new experiences, and a thirst for artistic adventure, Kaunas is for you. From the city’s unique take on Art Deco through to the dynamic and vibrant street art that adorns many of the city’s walls, Kaunas is a city for the creatively curious.
This is a summer city. A place where winds, boats and people cross paths. A place that smells of sea salt, and where the fragrance of pines cleanses the lungs and frees the mind. In Klaipėda, nobody rushes; in Klaipėda, the sound of music and clinking glasses fills the air, letters penned with memories are sent, and wind-burned lips are kissed. Everything is easier in Klaipėda, and there is more space for unexpected improvisations: a few steps along the charming embankment and you’re already on a boat under its sails. Where will it take you, what surprises will it show you? Let yourself be enticed – surrender to the charm of the moment.
The perfect getaway plan is this: you fly into Palanga Airport. An hour by car and you’re in Klaipėda. You check into a hotel with a view of the sea. You have lunch in a charming Old Town restaurant, where the owner personally recommends the freshest fish of the day. Leaving the Old Town and the jazz for tomorrow, you take the ferry to Smiltynė. After getting your fill of the air saturated with pine, listening to the breaking of the waves, and watching the sun go down, you get settled in at the yacht club on the shore of the Curonian Lagoon – nothing is more romantic than watching the ships sailing by and the tied-up yachts, floating with longing. Maybe your next trip will be something different?
