Kęstutis Kazlauskas, General Manager of the Radisson Blu Hotel Lietuva in Vilnius was able to share with us some thoughts on his hotel and Vilnius as a business destination!
1. What is special about the Radisson Blu Hotel Lietuva – where is your strength when it comes to organizing a meeting or incentive?
Radisson Blu is a first class, full-service hotel brand, that stands out from the crowd due to it’s 100% Guest Satisfaction Guarantee and “Yes I Can” service spirit.

2. What are the greatest benefits of Vilnius as a city in the eyes of international planners?
- Connected – the geographical centre of Europe is located in Lithuania (26 km from Vilnius). That means only a 1.5 – 2 hrs direct flight from key European cities
- Compact city – venues that can accommodate varying group sizes and are Safe Hotels certified.
- Unique Užupis district – the independent republic within Vilnius
- Various leisure activities depending on group size and interest – hot air ballooning over Vilnius, culinary tour or even canoeing. Incentives are the motivators that create team spirit and solidarity, whether it be athletic, culinary or hands-on competitive. There are plenty of ideas – let us inspire you!
3. What is your personal hotspot in the city? Where do you go on a weekend with your family to enjoy the local spirit?
My favourite Vilnius hotspot is Vokiečių (German) Street, one of the oldest in Vilnius, has been known for centuries as the city trade centre. It symbolizes the German part of town.
The name of the street originated from German merchants and craftsmen who lived here since the 14th century. Now Vokieciu Street remains to be one of the most beautiful Vilnius streets.
Every day it is crowded with people visiting exhibitions, concerts, urban festivals taking place on the City Hall square.
There are plenty of restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, boutiques, night clubs as well as main attractions such as the Town Hall, Gate of Dawn, Gediminas Castle Tower, the Cathedral and lots of other churches, museums and art galleries within few minutes walking distance.
