1. HOW TO GET TO VILNIUS – FLIGHTS
The best way to reach the Satellite Meeting in Vilnius, Lithuania – usually is to take a direct flight to Vilnius. But, because the International Airport in Vilnius is closed this time from 14th of July to 18th of August (being modernized), the best way is to take a flight from Warsaw International Airport (Chopin) and take a flight to Kaunas Airport (Lithuania) – and then by buss, train or taxi:
How to travel from Kaunas to Vilnius?
By bus: Kaunas Airport Express. Bus schedule is coordinated with Ryanair flight schedule and serves every flight. You can buy tickets here: http://www.ollex.lt/en/express.
By train: city bus No. 29 from Kaunas Airport to Kaunas Train station. From Kaunas train station to Vilnius by train. Train timetable: https://www.traukiniobilietas.lt/portal/en.

2. FROM VILNIUS TO WROCLAW – FLIGHTS
You will be able to book the flight Vilnius – Wroclaw already on 18th of August, when we are supposed to travel to IFLA in Wroclaw. (My husband and I, had already booked tickets through Polish Airlines LOT: 18 aug 15:30 Vilnius (VNO) – 18 aug 16:30 Warsaw (WAW) – 18 aug 17:25 Wroclaw (WRO). The flight takes about two hours and the prize is about 220 US $ per person.
