Riga/Vilnius

Jump to last reply

I'm in the beginning stages of planning a trip to Riga and Vilnius. We have 7 full days in late May/early June to split between the two cities and their surrounding areas. We will not have a car and will be relying on public transportation. I have a couple of starter questions:

1)I'm thinking of splitting the time 3 days Riga (including a daytrip to Sigulda)and 4 days Vilnius (including possible sidetrips to Kaunas and Trakai). Any thoughts? Anything I'm missing?

2) Is either city the better one to spend the weekend days in? Are there any weekend flea markets in either city that are worth the effort?

3) We will likely travel by bus between Riga and Vilnius, does anyone know how far in advance you have to reserve buses in Riga? Is it possible to fly in on Thursday night and be able to travel on Friday? Are weekend buses busier?

4) any suggestions for a midpriced hotel (less than $100 US per night) in Vilnius that is convenient to transportation? Don't need a lot of frills but it is important that it is comfortable.

5) are there still places left that sell old Soviet stuff (pins, tea holders, etc.)? We found quite a few shops in Tallinn a couple of years ago.

Thanks!
