    Country: Lithuania

    Default Accomodation, Transportation, etc.

    I see that there are already problems for people, who want to find a place to stay during the Eurobasket 2011 in Lithuania. That's because our country isn't the number 1 holiday destination in Europe, so there's usually no need to have a lot of hotels outside the capital city. But Eurobasket changes it all. So I decided to make a thread, where we Lithuanians could help the fans from other countries.

    First of all, a few suggestions:
    It might sometimes be hard to find a hotel in the city, where your team will be playing. That's especially truth for Alytus, Panevėžys, Šiauliai and to a lesser extent Kaunas. But Lithuania is a small country, so the distances between the cities aren't that big, the public transportation and the roads are good enough too. So you can always try adjacent towns: Klaipėda has Palanga and Nida, Alytus has Birštonas and Druskininkai, etc... For the final round, which will be held in Kaunas, you can stay in Vilnius - it only takes about an hour to go from 1 city to another.
    Illegal2k10 made a suggestion that if your team plays in Panevėžys, you could stay in Anykščiai or Ukmergė:

    Best places to rent a hotel would be Anyksciai and Ukmerge. These towns are quite beatifull if you ask me, and if you want some fun Vilnius is not far away(like 1.5h with bus).
    Anyksciai: ** hotel"puntukas"
    *** "Keturi Kalnai"
    "RomuvosParkas"
    ** "Anyksciu Silelis"
    Ukmerge: *** Big Stone
    There are smaller towns like these near all of the Eurobasket-hosting cities, feel free to ask any questions about them.


    In the Official site of Eurobasket 2011 you can find some useful information and links.

    There are a lot of sites on the internet which could help you find a place to stay:

    http://www.tripbaltic.com/en/ - this is an official partner of Eurobasket 2011 and should be integrated to eurobasket2011.com on 15 June.

    http://www.booking.com/country/lt.lt...7391160337;ws=

    http://www.hotels.lt/lt/results/,cit...ooms.1,size1.2

    http://www.on.lt/hotels.htm - a lot of links there, and not only for hotels

    http://www.travel.lt/index.php?lang=2

    http://www.lithuanianhotels.com/site/main

    http://www.maps.lt/en/ - you'll probably need this too (much better than google maps, for example)

    http://www.priejuros.lt/en/ - this is an excellent link for people, who will support the teams playing in group D.



    Don't limit yourselves to hotels: you can also look for hostels, privately rent houses/flats, etc... And feel free to ask if you need some help.

    Damn, it's hard to find anything in or near Panevė×ys. Well, first you should probably try all the links provided in the official site. If all the rooms are already booked in those places, you could consider AnykÜčiai, or Ukmergė (as the previous post says), or any other town near Panevė×ys. Maybe even Őiauliai, kaunas or Vilnius. Countryside tourism is becoming more and more popular in Lithuania, that's another option, but I guess it's not the best one for the basketball fans... But this could be an option for some people too:

    I'm sure there will be a lot of people renting flats for the period of Eurobasket, but it's hard to finds something now.

    Finally ! I've booked an apartment near Kaunas airport. It was much less expansive than in Kaunas and easier to find.

    If you mean from one city to another, this site should be helpfull. Currently, f.e. from Panevezys to Vilnius, latest bus in quite early one, but I'm quite sure that during tournament there'll be more and later trips

    Well, currently the last bus from Panevė×ys departs at 20.25, but I'm sure there will be buses going later than that during the Eurobasket. You can also rent a car or hire a taxi - Scottish football fans sometimes did that - it seemed cheap enough to them. Panevė×ys is the worst city in terms of accommodation - I'm sorry for that. I think that the best solution would be finding a flat for a week, but I'm not sure if it's possible to find anything so early. You could try contacting some of the people advertising their flats in Lithuanian Real Estate advertisement sites, aruodas.lt is the most popular (choose "flats rent" instead of "flats"):

    Or perhaps a real estate agency would be interested in helping you:

    I know that it's not helping much, but who knows, maybe you'll find something.

    I've posted the link to this site in the other thread already, but it should belong here as well.

    Fans of the teams, playing in Klaipėda (SLO, RUS, BEL, GEO, UKR, BUL) can make a great use of this site: http://www.priejuros.lt/en/

    I'm also looking for apartment as first option. We are going to be several people and it's seems like the best option...

    May I ask you where did you find it and what is the cost?

    Plus, there is a bigger problem for Őiauliai, absolutely nothing.

    May I ask about the price.

    Because we already booked something too in advance, for 4 people as well, but something that we may cancel if we find something better (in location/price).

    Are you coming to Őiauliai too? We are at the same group B...

    Hello all.

    I have created a facebook page for accomondation in Lithuania during EB2011.

    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Accomo...4724492?v=wall

    Maybe it the same as here but i think facebook ir more popular and it will be another way to spreand the info needed for accomodation. Please "like" and share it between your friends. In a few days i'm planning to put more info there. If anyone wishes to help by adding some info and maintaining this page, please write me a PM, i'll add you as admin. I think its our duty as host to help our foreign friends to have a pleasant stay in our country.

    P.S. i have use some of your posts tehre, dont be mad for copyright violations.

    Default accomodation in Lithuania

    Hi, I have two very beautiful apartments for rent in the midle of Lithuania, town called Kedainiai. Apartaments are in the old town,very close to the supermakets, restaurans. It is only 1 hour to get to Kaunas ( could make it even in 40 min.), same for Panevezys. Bouth apartaments are pretty spacious.
