Lithuania Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 48%, Lithuania can be both described as a historical dynamo and a modern day trailblazer (explanations are no doubt in order). To begin with, Lithuania was the first state to formally declare its independence from the former Soviet Union. Something like this takes courage! On the historical side of the coin, the country offers a range of options that makes many larger countries green with envy. Primary among these is Vilnius, which highlights the city's unique history as a "melting pot" of cultures and traditions. Any visit to Lithuania must also include a visit to the UNESCO-listed Curonian Spit, a narrow strip of coastal real estate that is home to Europe's largest shifting sand dunes. The region is incredibly important from an ecological perspective, while also providing the ideal backdrop for the perfect beach holidays.
