Where is Lithuania?
Lithuania is the largest and most southerly of the Baltic states. A former Soviet bloc nation – until it regained independence in 1990 – it borders Poland, Latvia and Belarus and has its coastline along the Baltic sea. Its capital, Vilnius, is just over 2,000 miles from London with regular flights departing from the UK.
The national language is Lithuanian, its currency is euros, and the dialling code is +370.
What is the Foreign and Commonwealth Office advice on traveling to Lithuania?
If you’re travelling to Lithuania, check the latest travel advice where Covid-19 restrictions are concerned and be prepared for plans to change at the last minute.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) currently advise that Lithuania is safe to travel to and most visits are free from trouble. But there is a threat of terrorism, and security may be increased in any places where there are large gatherings, including at Christmas markets. Always remain vigilant and follow the advice of the local authorities.
There is the usual risk of petty crime, including pickpockets, particularly in busy locations and on public transport. It’s also advisable to avoid unlit streets and parks at night, and be extra vigilant if you’re walking alone. Never leave drinks unattended in bars either.
If you’re driving your own car, you may need a GB sticker or a UK sticker and keep the following in mind:
- Winter tyres are legally required from November 10 to April 10.
- Dipped headlights are compulsory all year round.
- Unless otherwise indicated, speed limits are 50kmh in towns, 90kmh on country roads and 110kmh on highways.
- Don’t drink and drive. The legal blood-alcohol limit is 0.04%. Those found over the limit face a fine and possible imprisonment.
Bicycle and car theft is a problem in certain areas. Lock unattended vehicles and hide contents. Use guarded car parks in cities, especially overnight.
If you need emergency services, call 112.
