Travel to Lithuania

ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)

Lithuania is one of Europe's best-kept secrets. Having won its independence just over a decade ago, it's now part of the EU, and with its location in northeastern Europe, traveling to it is really quite easy, but air, sea or train.

The capital city of Vilnius' Old Town area is one of the largest in Europe. It's populated with numerous churches, palaces, cafes, boutiques and art galleries. The curved, narrow streets promise exciting discoveries around every turn.

The Curonian Spit National Park is one of the jewels of Lithuania. It's a narrow stip of land along the Baltic Sea, with sand dunes, forests, fishermen villages and is now on the UNESCO List as one of Europe's most beautiful and unique landscapes.

There's lots of museums, festivals, and cultural events for everyone to enjoy. For years, Lithuania has also been known as a favorite wellness resort area with its mineral waters and curative mud.
