Driving in Palanga

Car Class Recommendations

If you fancy the city rides and short trips, compact cars will do the trick. For a family trip or group travel, an SUV or minivan should serve you well because of the added luggage space and comfort. Fancy a superior driving experience? An executive class or luxury car will surely impress.

Speed Limits and Traffic Rules

Like the UK, Lithuanians drive on the right-hand side of the road, which can take some getting used to if you’re from the UK. Also, keep in mind that the pretty much rest of Europe, Lithuania uses the metric system. Speed limits are generally 50km/hr in towns, 90km/hr outside towns, and 130km/hr on motorways during summer months or 110km/hr during winter. Alcohol limit is 0.4‰ and the use of seat belts is mandatory for all passengers.

Attractions and Routes

Cruise along the Baltic coast and discover the Palanga Pier with breath-taking views, especially during sunset. Drive to the Palanga Botanical Park, a tranquil sanctuary spanning 100+ hectares, housing the impressive Amber Museum. Don't miss out on the Hill of Witches in Juodkrante, which is just a short drive away; it's an outdoor sculpture gallery filled with wood carvings based on Lithuanian folklore.

Practical Information

Parking

Parking laws are rigorously enforced in Palanga. City centre has blue zone parking where you can park for a fee and it is free from 8 pm to 8 am. "P" signs indicate a car park.

Currency

Lithuania uses the Euro (€) as its currency. Credit and debit cards are widely accepted, even for small purchases, although cash may be preferred in some places.

Climate

The Barry-Balkan stream is known to bring warm air masses from the Atlantic, making Lithuania’s climate somewhat milder compared to other northern countries. However, dress warmly in the winter months.

Seasonal Events

Summer, packed with festivals and live music, is peak tourist season in Palanga. The annual Palanga Smelt Festival celebrates the start of fishing season each February.
