A vacation rental in the heart of one of these cities, serves as a perfect starting point for excursions.

Top 5 travel tips
Hardly any tourist visits the country without visiting Vilnius. Especially the old town impresses by the old and well preserved gothic architectural style. The ruins of the "Gediminas Castle" can also be visited. At their foot lies the "Großfürstliche Schloss", which will certainly enchant you with all its splendour. Other old buildings and Gothic churches lend the city a very special flair. Of course you can also go shopping and eat typical food. After all, it doesn't always have to be the homemade dinner in your holiday apartment in Lithuania.2. The devil museum in Kaunas
If you visit the city of Kaunas, you must visit the Devil's Museum. Since the devil plays an important role in Lithuanian mythology, a separate museum is dedicated to him here. There are also many devil statues and images throughout the country.3. The "mountain of the crosses"
This Catholic place of pilgrimage is located about 12 km north of Siauliai and is characterized by tourism. A narrow wooden staircase leads over the double hill on which tens of thousands of pilgrim crosses are placed. For tourists there is a breathtaking view of this sea of crosses.
Things to know
Those who go on holiday in Lithuania will soon notice that on every corner products made of amber or individual amber stones are for sale or at least exhibited for admiration. They are probably the most common souvenir in the Baltic States, even though most of these stones come from Kaliningrad.
