About Lithuania

Lithuania is situated on the eastern coast of the Baltic Sea and covers 65.300 sq. km. The length of coastline is 99 km.

It is the southernmost of the three Baltic countries. Lithuania has a long history behind itself as a proud kingdom and once stretched to the Black Sea, some 2000 kilometers further to the south. Since then the country has shrunk a lot. But what's left is certainly worth exploring. A good starting point is Vilnius, the Jerusalem of Europe as it was called at the turn of the century. Other places of interest include the cities of Kaunas and Klaipeda.
