How to get to Lithuania

In accordance with individual interest, preference and the length of stay planned, travellers to Lithuania coming from western and central Europa have a choice concerning the means of transport to get there:

Trevelling by car:

Thanks to the beauty of landscape in Poland, it is an enjoyable ride - but it is slow. It means cruising over smaller roads and through villages and towns. When the weather is fine, an average of 70 km/h is reached. In summer, the agricultural campaign brings thousands of tractors on the roads, and travelling becomes considerably slower. Roads and Highways in Lithuania are comparatively good, especially when travelling East-West. 130 km/h is the maximum speed on the highways in summer.
The transit through Kaliningrad / Russia by private car continues cumbersome and expensive. Visa are required.
