The ferry for Lithuania is the most important means of transport. The coastline of Lithuanian part of Baltic seaside makes the ferry one of the most optimal ways of passenger and freight delivery. Moreover the ferry is the most convenient and the only way to get to the resort Neringa from the mainland.
Klaipeda, being the main port of the country, receives and ships the ferries. Regular ferry voyages connect it with the biggest cities of the seaside of the Baltic Sea: Kil, Lubeck, Copenhagen, Gdansk. Latvian Scandlines and an international company Lisco are the leading ferry operators in the port of Klaipeda.
The price of the tickets for ferries from Klaipeda fluctuates depending on the season. So, the voyage from Klaipeda to Kil (on Lisco line) during the holiday season (the end of June – August) is from 240 Euro for a single ticket. After the 16-th of September the price for the same ferry will be considerably lower (nearly 150 Euro).
Active ferry communication connects Lithuania with other Baltic states and also Kaliningradskaya region of Russian Federation. There’s the ferry from Klaipeda to Baltiysk.
