Vilnius' train station is not as loathsome as you might expect (we've spent the night in worse, though we certainly don't recommend it). Upon arrival, you'll find currency exchange, tourist information and left-luggage services open 24 hours. A small store in the basement is open from 06:00 to 21:00 and public phones (taksofonas!) abound. While destinations within LT are well-connected, you'll have to be more patient leaving the country. Timetables can be viewed online at litrail.lt and tickets can be bought at the station or from the conductor (for a bit more). To get to the Old Town in about 7 minutes, make a right out of the station and a left down Pylimo. Or hop on bus 26 or trolleybuses 1, 2, 5 or 7 which will all go through the city centre on their way elsewhere.

Awful customer service at the toilets in the basement of the train station. The old lady who was working there was actually shouting at people that could not pass through the gate to get an access to the toilet facilities. She was calling people "deaf and blind". I don't think this approach is acceptable in such a busy place.i was in Lithuania via transit and she actually was the only Lithuanian person I got a chance to talk to, and she set very negative attitude to the whole country!!!!
We really enjoyed our journey from Kaunas on the top deck of the train. Fares are really cheap by UK standards and you actually get a seat on the train! Vilnius station was in good order. Decent facilities and easy to connect up with local transport or walking routes to the city.
Really nice clean station with helpful staff jump a bus to old town in minutes. The best part is the station cafe surprisingly good food and efficient waitress .
Vilnius Station is actually quite superb. It has real wheelchair support in all areas and the station is an extremely safe and clean environment. It really is a credit to the city now!
Cheers guys. Due in March 27th... should be fun
