Baltic States

Lithuania

Lithuania – a country to see. A blend of achievements of the modern world, historical cultural heritage, old living traditions and rites and unique beauty of nature. Lithuania is the oldest of the Eastern Baltic States. The first mentioning of it dates back to the year 1009. A country born of amber-trading tribes known by the ancient Romans, the ancestors of today‘s modern Lithuanian people, and where an amber stone is referred to as a symbol of the country.

A country reborn for the second time is a real whirl of intense cultural life and entertainment market. Music from classical to modern to folk. Colorful stage performances, traditional festivals or nightlife shows full of a buzz and wild rhythms, as well as sport competitions. Lithuania‘s basketball stars are well known all over the world.

Nature has been generous to Lithuania. Although there are no mountains or great forests, the country's beauty lies in the diversity of its landscape. This is a place of rolling hills and gentle plains; of quietly flowing rivers and of lakes which reflect the blueness of the sky. The largest river, the Nemunas, gathers and carries the waters of many tributaries to the Baltic Sea, wherein lies Lithuania's famous "amber coast".

Called the Curonian Spit, it is a sixty mile-long bank of sand dunes and pine trees

which stretches from the southwest to the seaport of Klaipėda and encloses the vast Curonian Lagoon. For centuries, amber, Lithuania's precious harvest of the sea, has been washed onto these golden sands.

After recovering independence, in a short time Lithuania has gained visible improvement. Cities grow more beautiful, services of every nature are expanding, and its GDP is one of the highest in Europe year by year. In 2004 the country became a member of NATO and the EU. Lithuania welcomes guests from all over, and always shows it hospitality. Come and experience it! It’s easy to find. It is in the geographical heart of Europe. In 1989theFrench National Geographical Institute pronounced a spot just north of Vilnius the exact geographical centre of Europe.
