A Guide to Travelling to Lithuania
The hidden gem of the Baltic countries, Lithuania is a heady cocktail of both stunning natural beauty and wonderful man-made architecture.
Lithuania is a quirky country which is in the midst of establishing a new identity since gaining independence. It retains its old traditions and has remnants of Soviet rule, including functionalist architecture set among its more beautiful baroque buildings. A destination well worth a visit.
Why visit Lithuania?
There are a few UNESCO World Heritage sites in Lithuania, including Kernave, a collection of ancient forts and an archaeological site and the Vilnius Old Town, which is among the largest old town in Europe.
The cities of Klaipeda and Vilnius are popular and attract the most visitors, but the beaches and national parks are also worth a trip.
