Lithuania is a land of lakes, history and basketball.
“… Lithuania nation must be saved, as it is the key to all the riddles – not only philology but also in history – to solve the puzzle.”
― Immanuel Kant
Lithuania, the land of amber, pine trees, and lakes, was once a mighty power in medieval Europe. The country’s long and rich history is a centuries-long story of native Lithuanians, Poles, Jews, Russians, Belarusians, Karaites, and Tartars. Come to Lithuania and discover cultural wonders such as Baroque cathedrals, medieval Trakai Castle, and the world-famous Hill of Crosses.
In Vilnius, gaze upon the beautiful Black Madonna of Ostrobrama and pay your respects at the previous home of local composer and artist, M.K.Ciurlionis. You’ll wander the streets of Vilnius’ Old Town, once called the “Jerusalem of the North,” and the inner courtyards of Old Vilnius University, the oldest such institution in the Baltics.
Your first-stop highlights should definitely be Vilnius, Trakai, Kaunas, and Klaipeda. For more adventures off-the-beaten-path, head to Kedainiai, Veliuona, Jurbarkas and other smaller beautiful towns. Our guides are enthusiastic to enrich your visit with our knowledge and passion for our homeland.
If you haven’t tried Cold Beet Root Soup or potato pancakes – you haven’t been in Lithuania! These are both staple dishes, essential to the local cuisine. Firstly and foremost, don’t miss out on cepelinai, potato dumplings with meat. If you prefer more gourmet foods to suit the palate, Vilnius is home to many restaurants offering both trendy menus as well as more traditional, hearty dishes. As a result, we can assure you won’t be hungry in Lithuania. Finally, don’t forget to wash it all down with a glass of local craft beer!
