Lithuania is at the southernmost part of Europe’s Baltic states. Its capital, Vilnius is known for its medieval old town, subsequent Gothic, Renaissance and baroque architecture, and its 18th-century cathedral.
The Lithuanian cuisine is based on the cool and moist northern climate of Lithuania: barley, potatoes, rye, beets, greens, berries, and mushrooms are locally grown, and dairy products are one of its specialities.
The lack of mountains on the horizon is compensated by lush forests and countless lakes. Lithuania also has some large swatches of breathtaking dunes and beautiful coast lines.
