HOW TO GET HERE

By plane

Probably the best travel option is to fly to Vilnius Airport (VNO), which is located 8 km from the Old Town and the conference venue. Transportation options and approximate taxi rates between the airport and your hotel can be found here. You can catch a cab outside the airport; you can also download an app to order taxi to any address using your smartphone.

You can also consider flights to Kaunas Airport (KUN), which is located ~105 km from Vilnius Old Town. There is a shuttle bus operating between Kaunas Airport and Vilnius Train Station. Shuttle bus should be ordered on-line before the flight. For additional pay this shuttle bus takes you to the exact address that you have to indicate on the second step while booking your shuttle bus tickets.

By bus

This is a cheaper option, and – surprisingly – not necessarily a less comfortable one. You can reach Vilnius from many European capitals. Some of the coaches provide Wi-Fi, hot beverages, and personal video entertainment system. The main operators are LUX Express, Eurolines, and Ecolines.

By train

Definitely the least comfortable way to reach Vilnius, although could be an option for those traveling from Moscow or Minsk.

By car

If you choose to come by car, you should take into account that parking at Vilnius Old Town is a real issue and can be expensive. Two places close to the conference venue to park for longer periods of time for more reasonable prices are here and here.
