When To Go

Lithuania has something to offer all year round. Summer is packed with festivals, from folk music to dance, film and theatre. The countryside is at its most colourful in spring and autumn, although be prepared for changeable weather. Winter means snow – wrap up warm and explore a landscape transformed into a glistening wonderland.

Top Tip from SLH

Lithuanians love one sport in particular – basketball. During your visit, try and catch a game in the capital, Vilnius.
