When to go

A trip to Lithuania will vary immensely depending on the time of year.

Summer (June-late August) or peak tourist season: countless festivals.

Winter (November-March): snowfall and short days.

Spring and autumn: both seasons are brief and often quite rainy, but spring is bright and cheerful.


Time difference

Lithuania is on GMT+2 (October-February) and GMT+3 (March-September), so, when it is 12noon in London, it is 2pm in Vilnius.

Lithuania switches to and from daylight saving time on the last Sunday of March and October.


Documents

Valid passport.


Health
