Vilnius Taxis

Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, is a city rich in culture, history, art, architecture, and gastronomy. It offers visitors an exciting and varied experience with must-see attractions like the UNESCO-listed Old Town, the Gediminas Castle Tower, the Zoo Park, and the eerie KGB museum. The city is also home to many museums, art galleries, food markets and craft breweries that are well worth a visit.

With so much to do and see, you need to be able to get around the city quickly and easily, so we recommend using a Vilnius taxi. Taxis in Vilnius are plentiful so you won’t have trouble finding one, there are official taxi ranks throughout the city but keep in mind that not all of them are reliable, especially regarding the use of official taximeters. Alternatively, you can opt to book a taxi or private car in advance for a guaranteed set-rate transfer with no hidden fees.
