Guide to Lithuania

The former Grand Duchy of Lithuania is now a parliamentary republic in the Baltic States and borders the Baltic Sea, where you can also find some beautiful sandy beaches. Culturally, the country presents itself as diverse: while there are many German, Swedish and Danish influences in the west, the eastern part is dominated by Polish elements. The archaeological site of Kernave is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as are the dunes on the Curonian Spit (a peninsula) and the baroque Old Town in the capital Vilnius. Vilnius is also home to the 326-metre-high TV Tower, whose viewing platform is a popular destination.
