|Meetings during the Lithuanian Presidency 2013|
Official language: Lithuanian
Lithuania is two hours ahead Greenwich Mean Time (GMT +2).
Climate & Weather
Climate of Lithuania can be described as typical European continental climate with warm, dry summers and fairly severe winters. In summer temperature reaches 20-25°C, but sometimes it can reach 30°C or even more. Late autumn in Lithuania is usually chilly and wet, often foggy, sometimes snowy. During the wintertime strong, cold northeasterly inds occur. Heavy snowfall or even snowstorms are also possible on some days.
The currency of Lithuania is Litas. It is divided into 100 Centas. Banknotes of 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500 Litas exist, with 100 being the most common and 500 a rare sight. Coins of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 Centas and 1, 2, 5 Litas are in circulation. Foreign currencies are not used but are possible to exchange at every bank. Bank wards in the major shopping malls are open longer and do not close on Sundays. It is easy to exchange Euros and US Dollars with Euro being the best option as Litas is pegged to Euro at a rate of 1 Euro to 3,4528 Litas (since 2002). Daily Exchange Rates of the Litas against Foreign Currencies can be found at: http://www.lb.lt/exchange/default.asp
ATMs and Credit Cards
Credit/debit cards are widely but not universally accepted in Lithuania. Chain stores and restaurants are more likely to accept cards than independent alternatives. ATM machines are readily available, especially near main supermarkets. Visa and Master Card are the most common cards; acceptance of American Express is more limited.
Lithuania uses 220 volts AC (50 Hz). Sockets take two round pines (European standard).
International telephone dialing:
Smoking indoors is not permitted in any of the event venues.
Transport from the Airport to the Meeting Venue
It is possible to use public transport to get from Vilnius Airport to your hotel, but the best, safest and most comfortable way is to take a taxi.
We recommend Smart Taxi:
You can order Smart Taxi by telephone +370 520 00 820 or short number 1820
