Around 30€ per person if you are not working (meaning the employer pays it) or not registered in Lithuanian Labour Exchange (Darbo birža), as they pay it for you if you a registered there as looking for a job.

You guys are crazy or what up there? I dont know anybody who gets less than 600 eur.after taxes.. And that money you earn if drive a cab or do some shit job.. The city is Great! A lot of fantastic People, buetiful girls, great restourants and pubs.. A lot of culture events, a lot of international People living here. Vilnius has one of the biggest old towns in europe. And one of the most buetiful! To rent one bedroom flat you will need about 400 eur. To buy one- 70-80 t.eur. Its much more safe to live here than in paris, barcelona or london... Get sober you two to there ;)

Disclaimer: this is my own experience, please do not take it as 100% sample - you may face different situations than I faced.

I have lived in Vilnius (year 2000-2002) and Lithuania used to be a very safe place, even I seemed to be the only foreigner there, after my recent visits to Vilnius things have changed. Life is much more expensive, salaries increased a little and prices increased a lot. Financially poor people but very friendly and helpful.

#Mudassar: In Vilnius, you may get maximum of 300 to 400 EUR after taxes, keep in mind the cost of living.

#Hedwig mockus noble: I would like to encourage you to visit and spend some time in Vilnius, go for living outside of Vilnius (direction Europos Parkas). My advice is to know some Lithuanian OR take some local guide for initial weeks, you may look for some Tandom partner student who could teach some Lithuanian in return would learn English.

Can someone please tell that what is the avarage wages os saales and account managers in Lithunia.Thank you

WARNING! Since 2015 year Lithuania officially switched to EURO currency. People stil adapt to it, and we see in stores both prices, LTL and EUR. But i think in at least half of year everyone will forget LTL. So good to fix it here.

#Benas if you trust on cost of living, why don't you trust in on crime stats? `:D

Hedwig, relax, and don't even think about Lithuania. Don't another stupid man from USA who also believes to follow parents way witch they was born. There in Lithuania everything is lower than standard: food, prices,salary, peoples etc. I from Lithuania, but when i got 18 years old I run away without looking back to this side. If you want broke your life and understanding about this go. Go and see what not fear things there happening. Don't forget to buy some guns and another protection from poor young guys who wants to borrow your phone for the call and don't give back your phone plus you will get visit in the hospital after that.
So keep calm and relax in Florida :)
