The land of lakes: the best lakes to swim around Vilnius

While writing this post it's summer. Hot as hell.

Above 30 degrees of Celsius.

I feel empathic to the ones who are stuck in their apartments, sweating in front of their laptops.


To make your existence easier here's the list of the best (in our opinion) lakes to refresh yourself

close to Vilnius. Most of them are located 20 - 48km away from the city center.


So, take a look and grab your swimsuit.


1. Lentvaris Lake (or Grauzys Lake) | 22km from Vilnius city center


The lake surrounded by forests with Lentvaris manor on its North East side and two tiny islands.

Lentvaris Lake is pretty deep, the deepest spot is 34.5 meters.


By the way, they have a really pretty railway station!

3. Balsys Lake | 14km from Vilnius city center


Balsys Lake has a beautiful camping site by the forest, a footbridge leading to the lake, hiking trail around the water and a beach for people with special access needs.


The only disadvantage that in the summer you might find half of Vilnius population sunbathing on its sandy coast.

9. Skaistis Lake | 32km from Vilnius city center


A lake near Trakai which has 9 forested islands!

Ain't that great?

10. Buivydiskiai pond | 8km from Vilnius city center

Well, that's a bomb!

The pond is located in Buivydiskiai park where you can see a manor that once belonged to Radvilos family.

Now the building is dedicated to school. And that's a future beach they're planning to establish there.
