Lithuania, although a very small country, has much to offer. From the old world charm of its capital city, Vilnius, to the beautiful, rural, coastline around Nida, you can really relax and make yourself at home in this quaint country. It is a small Baltic country in Northern Europe that touches the Baltic Sea to the west and Lativa to the North. It is also bordered by Belarus, Poland and Russia (Kaliningrad).

Lithuania can be divided into five different regions which have their own unique differences and personalities. Aukstaitija is in the northeast and has highlands and natural beauty. Zemaitija is in the northwest and offers a fascinating culture as well as the Hill of Crosses. The capital city of Vilnius is located in Dzukija, which is to the south and Suduva is to the southwest. Lithuania Minor is along the coastline and offers impressive sand dunes and coastal towns.

Given its small size, the country has a lot to offer visitors. There are many religiously significant sites that attract pilgrims from all over the world. There are also impressive natural settings, quaint small towns, and vibrant cities and university towns that provide fun settings in which you can relax.

There are plenty of places to go if you enjoy shopping in Lithuania. There are many different shopping centers around and on weekends you may find some open air markets. Gariunai is the Baltic's largest open air market and it is found just to the west of Vilnius. There are many different vendors there from not only Lithuania but also countries as far away as the Ukraine.

Basketball is a favorite sport among many Lithuanians. It makes up an interesting part of the country's history and has always been a source of national pride. They are a basketball powerhouse and if the opportunity presents itself to attend a game, this can be a fun and unique experience.

Train travel is a popular option and tickets are much more affordable than they are in Western Europe. Litrail provides service to the major cities and they offer both seating and sleeping cars, although most trips are relatively short.

  • Buses are a convenient way to travel around the country. They stop frequently so trips may take longer than you originally anticipate. There are several different companies of varying quality that offer travel between the cities. Inquire into the reliability of and efficiency of the bus company before you purchase tickets.

  • The official language of Lithuania is Lithuanian. Russian is a common second language and about eighty percent of the the population speaks it. The younger population is learning English more frequently but it still remains uncommon. Some people also speak German.

  • Accommodation throughout Lithuania can vary dramatically in price and style. It remains cheaper than accommodation in Western Europe and if you travel during the low or shoulder seasons you will save even more money. In smaller towns and rural areas it may be difficult to find accommodation during the winter months as they generally expect few tourists during those times.

  • Lithuania has an interesting history and culture of which they take much pride. Make a point of visiting the small towns, wooden churches, and quaint settings so that you can fully appreciate this culture. If there are local festivals going on, then these present the perfect opportunity to fully experience the everything that this country and its friendly people have to offer.

Dairy products are also popular throughout the country. The food is similar to that found in other Eastern European countries, but there is a unique, local twist on most dishes.
