Vilnius Hotels Invite Tourists to Take an Unforgettable Hot Air Balloon Flight

News Today, the hospitality industry around the world is struggling, and professionals in the industry try to take different steps to attract more guests and remind tourists that they are open. This time, hoteliers of Vilnius decided to fly over the capital of Lithuania in a hot air balloon, carrying the message “Vilnius is calling”. Indeed, hotels in Vilnius are open and waiting for new guests, the same as local museums, restaurants, and other venues.

The city’s mayor Remigijus Šimašius together with the representatives from local museums, hotels, and tour guides flew over the city in a hot air balloon inviting tourists to do the same during their summer vacation in Vilnius. The flight was made during the first day of a hotel air balloon competition. This is the first competition of this kind after the COVID-19 pandemic. Dozens of hot air balloons painted the sky of Vilnius in different colors as a symbol of life that gets back to normal after the pandemic.

Vilnius, which is added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, has a truly beautiful skyline. A hot air balloon flight is an amazing opportunity to see the city in detail. Tourists are welcome to book this mesmerizing activity and see the capital’s attractions at a new angle. By the way, hot air balloon flights over the city are available only in a few European capitals.

If you are thinking of booking a hotel in Vilnius and visiting Lithuania this summer, here is some news that is worth considering. At the moment, tourists from 26 countries can visit Lithuania without any limitations. These are Latvia, Bulgaria, Germany, Poland, Austria, the Netherlands, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Luxembourg, Estonia, Italy, Hungary, Slovakia, Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Spain, Finland, France, Norway, Slovenia, Croatia, Greece, Romania, Denmark, and Malta. Travelers from the rest of the world can enter Lithuania but they will need to spend 2 weeks in self-isolation. As the number of international flights is increasing every week, it is now easier to reach the country.

Vilnius is one of the safest destinations to visit this summer. The country had a low number of COVID-19 cases and successfully stopped the spread of the disease. As approximately 20 times fewer people were infected in Lithuania than in most European countries, the local health system didn’t have any increased pressure. The European Best Destinations included Vilnius in its list of the safest destinations for summer 2020.
