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.

Currency

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
