What To Do In Druskininkai?
Taking A Long Walk Around The Town
Even though Druskininkai is a small town, it has a lot to offer.
Take a long walk around the town and see the interesting architecture of Druskininkai.
Church of Saint Mary’s Scapular will be a highlight of your tour. It is huge and monumental.
Just 5-10 minutes walking from the St Mary’s, there is another lovely church with a beautiful name- Joy Of All Who Sorrow. It is all blue and really old.
There are many parks in the park with interesting sculptures.
Go to Snow Arena
It’s something for winter sports lovers! If you are looking for indoor skiing Lithuania, Snow Arena is your place to go.
It is the only spot like this in the Baltic states. Snow Arena is open all year round, so you can skiing or snowboarding there even in the middle of the summer.
Visit Druskininkai Water Park
Having fun at Aqua Park is one of the best things to do in Druskininkai. Not only it’s the most famous tourist attraction in the town but the oldest water park in Lithuania!
It is really huge, with countless swimming pools, waterslides, and saunas. Druskininkai is a peaceful town, so if you really want to have fun there, Aqua Park is the only place to go for you.
Watch The Light And Water Show
Have you heard of the dancing fountains? They are popular tourist attractions all around the world… including Druskininkai!
Musical fountains are situated right next to the Aqua Park and operate only when it is warm enough outside, from April to October.
You can see the show every hour from 11 am to 11 pm.
Where To Stay In Druskininkai?
Arguably the best hotel in Druskininkai is Spa Vilnius. It has a pretty big wellness area, with an indoor swimming pool, saunas, and jacuzzi.
We really LOVED this hotel. It has a very relaxing atmosphere. There are many resting areas in the building, so you will have beds and chairs to sit down every few steps.
Spa Vilnius’s main goal is to take care of its guests and their healthy relax. That is why you will find water dispensers on every floor and you will know how many calories each food on buffet breakfast have. How awesome is that?
Speaking of breakfast- it is really delicious.
The location of the hotel is great, within the walking distance to the heart of the town and all the monuments that I have mentioned before.
