Reaching VMU Dormitory from Vilnius Airport
Vilnius airport is located 6 km from the centre of Vilnius where the train and bus stations can be found. Thus, you will have to take a bus No. 1 and go till the bus stop “Stotis” (the ticket will cost 2,50 LTL at the driver) or a taxi (you may be charged about 50 LTL). There is a direct train going from Vilnius airport to Vilnius train station (the ticket will cost 2,50 LTL at the conductor).
You may change money at the currency exchange office in the Airport.
In Vilnius train or bus station (the bus terminal is opposite the train station on the left side) you will have to take train or bus to Kaunas. Actually, we advise you to take a bus which goes to Kaunas approximately every half an hour and cost about 20 LTL. Train departures are not so frequent. For safe traveling we advise you not to use private drivers’ offers. You can check the bus routes and exact timetables at: www.autobusubilietai.lt, train routes and timetables at: www.litrail.lt.
Kaunas bus station is located on the same street as VMU students’ dormitory. Just take any trolleybus from the bus station side and go 2 stops (till stop “Kestucio”). VMU students’ dormitory is front of the bus stop, on the other side of the street.
