A City of Parks and Green Space | Vilnius, Lithuania, Vilnius, Lithuania (B)

The third and final stop on my tour of the Baltics was a two-night stay in Vilnius, Lithuania. The small capital of the small country was an amazing retreat from a normal city experience. It gave me the same feeling that I get when I drive up to northern Minnesota for a weekend. Seclusion, quiet, free from drama. Green trees, cool evenings, clean air. 

To get there I took the Lux Express bus from the Riga bus station. The journey took about 3.5 hours and was on one of their clean, comfortable coaches. I really love this bus company, I hope that they continue to expand westward in Europe. It was the perfect means of travel between the Baltic States. 

After a two night stint at the Naughty Squirrel in Riga, I was in need of a few quiet nights. This hostel was the perfect answer to my prayers – a quiet, cabin-like property that was on the edge of the city center, nestled in the woods.

They offer a rustic bar serving local brews, coffee and tea and breakfast in the morning (at a cost) and a huge kitchen. The rooms were very spacious, well-lit with large security lockers.
