I got to Kedainai by my car driving there from Poland.

WHERE IS IT ?
7 km west of the main south - north highway E67. Turn to Kedainiai on the half of a way from Kaunas to Panavezys.

E67 leads from Suwalki (Poland) via Kaunas (Lithuania), Riga (Latvia) to Tallin, Estonia and further by a ferry to Helsinki, Finland. This highway is called Via Baltica and mostly of very good quality, partly still renovated.

The closest to Kedainai larger cities are Kaunas to the south and Panavezys to the north - both located along Via Baltica, each at a driving distance approx. 50 km to Kedainiai.

TRAINS AND BUSES:
You can get to Kedainiai by train or bus as well.

Buses I saw on the way to Kedainiai from Kaunas were mostly old or very old (Ikarus) but it changes... look at the largest Lithuanian bus company called Kautra. Keep in mind that the average speed of local buses (with numerous bus stops) is below 50 km/h. They go faster between Vilnius and Kaunas though.

The international train Riga, Latvia - Vilnius - Kiev - Simferopol (Ukraine) stops in Kedainiai. Trains are mostly slooow: they go over 1 hour from Kaunas and almost 2 hours from Vilnius. Just in case, check European Train Timetable
