Lithuania enjoys record year for tourism

Lithuania has announced 2018 as a record year for tourism with 3.6 million tourists travelling to the destination and representing an increase of 11.3% in overall visitation compared to 2017.

In particular, the number of visitors from the UK has increased by 19.1% meaning Lithuania is firmly on Brits’ travel radar. Lithuania is easily accessible from the UK, with direct flights from three London airports, and is one of the most affordable city breaks in Europe.

From Vilnius’ Historic Centre, brimming with ancient architecture and charming neighbourhoods to Kaunas’ modern street art scene and even a UNESCO-protected Biosphere in Zuvintas, the country has a lot to offer to travellers with a variety of interests. Increasingly, travellers are seeking multi-city or twin centre destinations in the country, such as combining the cosmopolitan capital of Vilnius with Birstonas’ superior spa facilities.

With a new direct flight from the London City Airport launching on May 1, the tourism board expects that next year’s figures will likely increase again.
