From Kaunas: If you prefer nicier views – stick to the map and go through Alytus, but if your goal is speed – take a highway via Vilnius. If you are taking a bus, go through Vilnius too.

From Varena / Druskininkai: Should you be coming from Varena side, turn right after 75 kilometre post BY THE SIGN KUKISKES.
