Birštonas – already well known as one of the oldest spas resorts in Lithuania, is now an ambitious competitor in the meetings industry in Lithuania. Birštonas offers wonderful world-class health and wellness services as well as a perfect business infrastructure.
Mineral water vapour halls as well as amber and Kneipp therapy offered by Birštonas are unique in Lithuania. Birštonas is viewed as one of the oldest balneology resorts and one of the most eco-friendly cities of Lithuania.
Perhaps much less well known is the range of good quality meetings and event facilities on offer with first-class hotels. The biggest meeting hall in the city can accommodate up to 500 delegates for a meeting. Birštonas has almost 550 beds in the 3 to 5* categories and a range of special venues for holding meetings and special dinners and gala events including Birštonas Kurhauz and Birštonas Culture Center.
In addition Birštonas has long traditions in organizing various special events, especially hot-air ballooning ones. As a result, Birštonas Ballooning Festival is the oldest traditional festival in Lithuania. On 4-10 July 2016 Birštonas is welcoming the 2nd FAI Women‘s World Hot Air Balloon Championship, gathering more than 80 best women pilots from all over the world.
