Can I enter all objects on the route?

No. Normally, the route should only remain outside of the listed objects except if you wish, you can enter the Restaurant Neringa, and the two museums along the route - Venclova House-Museum and Museum of Occupations and Freedom Fights.

Lukiškės prison 2.0 has a yard that you can enter if there are no events happening, but entrance inside the prison can only be done with certified guides so walkthroughs must be booked in advance on their website.

Is the tour route wheelchair accessible?

The route itself is fully wheelchair accessible. Restaurant Neringa is fully wheelchair accessible and you can enter it easily for a meal or a coffee. Nevertheless, the entrance to museums along the route is not wheelchair accessible. Both the Venclova House-Museum and the Museum of Occupations and Freedom Fights are not wheelchair accessible, but you can still listen to our audio while next to them and entrance is not necessary to learn about the dissident life. Lukiškės prison 2.0 - the last stop on the route - has a yard that can be accessed during opening hours and is appropriate for wheelchairs, but further entrance can only be granted with an in-advance booking. Please check with their guides in advance to see if your needs can be met.

How do I get to the first stop on the route?

The first stop on the route is Restaurant Neringa at Gedimino pr. 23, Vilnius.

If you're coming from the train or bus station of Vilnius, you can take bus no. 53 or 1G from Stotis (J) and get off at stop "Vinco Kudirkos aikštė" - the Restaurant is just 4 minutes away from there!
