Best time to visit Lithuania

Lithuania is well-known for its cold and icy winters, and it’s this dream of a Winter Wonderland that adds to the experience of this beautiful country. Winter can see minimum temperatures of -5°C between November and February, so make sure to pack in extra fleecy undies to keep the cold at bay! For warmer temperatures, consider visiting between late spring and summer. The heart of summer is between July and August, and you’ll be enjoying some great Baltic highs of between 21°C and 23°C. Regardless of the season, it’s always a good idea to pack in a pair of wellies as the weather can often be unpredictable.

Lithuania is a safe country to visit and as it is less popular than other European destinations, you will not be bothered by large crowds when visiting top attractions. In the bigger cities such as Vilnius and Kaunas, pick pocketing and other forms of petty crime do occur, so please be aware of this. If you are renting a car, make sure to park it in a designated parking area and to set the car’s alarm whenever you are not driving, as break-ins do happen.

It is always important to go for a general health check-up before a trip overseas. It is best to do this 4-6 weeks before your trip. For your trip to Lithuania, it is recommended to get a vaccination against hepatitis A, as well as hepatitis B and rabies.
