Getting There & Away
The Steamboat Druskininkai makes trips between Druskininkai and Liškiava during the summer months.
Buses to/from Druskininkai and Vilnius stop at the Merkinė intersection (Merkinės kryžkelė; €3, 30 minutes, four daily), 2km east of Merkinė town centre. Three daily trains to/from Vilnius stop at Zervynos (€4.20, 1¾ hours) and Marcinkonys (€4.50, two hours).
Cycling is a wonderful way to explore the park, and bikes can easily be hired in Druskininkai, in season. The Druskininkai tourist office also has excellent free maps for cyclists.
