Around a month ago I was having a dinner with my lovely friends and we remembered how we used to travel together when we were studying at university and how remarkable those days were. That’s how we decided it’s time to spend a few days together again and revitalize our bodies and souls. We were considering a couple of cities in Latvia and Lithuania where we could drive by car, enjoy the surroundings and spend some time together. Finally, we chose Druskininkai, a wonderful resort in Lithuania, not so far away from Vilnius.
Druskininkai! Here We Come!
This weekend, early in the morning, we were on our way to Druskininkai. Four girls with cups of morning coffees and teas and never-ending talks. The first place we went to once we arrived was a restaurant Sicilia, which is the best restaurant there and, as you can guess from its name, a delicious Italian food is served there. We were starving after our way to the resort so without any hesitations we ordered a family size pizza for late breakfast. The pizza was incredibly delicious and it was gone within minutes!
Later on, we got the keys to the apartment we rented on Airbnb and headed straight there. A lovely flat was all ours and we were super excited about this weekend! We played table games, laughed a lot and enjoyed time together.
Body and Soul
However, our trip wasn’t only about staying at our lovely flat and hanging out together. Druskininkai is a famous resort because of its mineral spring water and is also called a spa town. So obviously we had to go to a spa! There’s an aqua park but we all already been there some time ago and wanted to go somewhere else. Also, we looked for a place not far from our apartment so that we could walk there by foot. There were a lot of options to choose from and we decided to go to the sanatorium “Belorus” which is the second best sanatorium in Druskininkai. They have pools with local mineral spring water and saunas. Plus, it’s located in the city center and is easy to reach. So after resting a bit after our journey there, we headed to “Belorus”. Besides, on our way there we went to the market where we found a stall with mouthwatering warm waffles covered in chocolate and also tried out ”

Besides, on our way there we also went to the market where we found a stall with mouthwatering warm waffles covered in chocolate and we couldn’t resist them. Also, we tried out “Lynu Kelias” which is cable cars that go from aqua park to “Snow” arena, over a picturesque view of Druskininkai. Only then we went to the spa where we enjoyed the splashes and saunas together.
We all need to escape our everyday life from time to time and have more than a few hours chitchats with our friends. This weekend, we managed to revitalize our bodies and souls by spending quality time together and making memories. I hope to have more moments like this in the future because it was wonderful!
How do you treat yourself to revitalize your body and soul?
