Lithuania is a state on the eastern coast of the Baltic Sea. Near by Latvia, Belarus, Poland, and Russia. Lthuania is covered with forests and dotted with lakes and rivers.   Most visits to Lithuania start with the capital of Vilnius. Vilnius have old town with great and variegated architecture. Gediminas Castle, a number of Baroque, Gothic and Neo-Gothic buildings in Old town is simply amazing.

  Trakai includes stroll through the medieval town, and along the shores of the lake, also there is medieval palace in the centre o f the lake. Kernavė offers a chance to walk around the hills where wooden castles once stood and relax in the serene surrounding of ancient burial mounds.

In the confluence of the Nemunas and the Neris, 100 kilometres from Vilnius, lies Kaunas - Lithuania’s second largest city. It is a modern and dynamic city. Kaunas has a lot to offer for visitors of all age groups: parks, museums, examples of Art Deco still found in many restaurants and cafes of the Old Town.

For those looking for a place to escape the routine, noise and tensions and to relax, several resort towns located in the most spectacular parts of the country can provide just that. Some 40 km to the south of Kaunas is the spa town of Birštonas.

It sits at the picturesque Nemunas river loop and is famous not only for a variety of recreational spas but also for its own jazz festival.

In the south of Lithuania lies the spa town of Druskininkai. The town sits on the bank of the Nemunas river and is surrounded by forests. With pristine nature and an abundance of spas offering natural mineral water treatment, it is the best place for those seeking recovery from the fast pace of life. A few kilometres away from Druskininkai one can find the Grūtas park, a site with a collection of Soviet monuments to Lenin and other Soviet leaders which were erected all over Lithuania during the Soviet period.

The Klaipėda sea-port, Palanga, Šventoji and the Curonian Spit are the most popular holiday destinations among Lithuanians because they are beautiful in any season.

Klaipėda is the most northern Baltic and sole Lithuanian ice-free port. Klaipėda is known for its long trading history. As a matter of fact, the town tends to bare more resemblance to northern architecture. Some of the buildings that have survived have a pronounced Fachwerk style. Klaipėda has been promoting marine traditions: since 1934, each last weekend in July sees the celebration of the Sea Festival. Palanga and Šventoji are resort towns offering everything one may need for a good holiday. The Curonian Spit, however, is for those seeking a peaceful retreat. Thatched roofs and carved wooden weather vanes give the tiny villages a cosy touch. Due to slow pace of life, authentic architecture and old crafts Juodkrantė, Preila, Pervalka and Nida seem to have preserved the spirit of the 18th and 19th centuries. This area is also famous for all kinds of freshly smoked fish sold in nearly every second house.
