There’s no time like Summer to visit Vilnius. And no time like THIS Summer to enjoy it without the usual crowds. You see, from mid-July to mid-August, our airport is closed for repairs. Which is why NOW is a great time to visit. No need to fly. Just hop on the bus. Nothing else is closing – just the airport. Still the same enjoyable city. Just less crowds. Which means more fun and relaxation for you (and better pictures!).
