Discover You. In Lithuania
Only a short flight from all major European cities, Lithuania sits quite literally at the heart of Europe. Its capital, Vilnius, has been quoted alongside Copenhagen and Barcelona by the New York Times as a hip and well managed place to live, and the 2015 Mercer Cost of Living Index ranked the city as one of 5 least expensive in the EU. With its plentitude of green parks and pure air, and its relaxed, yet energizing vibe, Vilnius offers the perfect location for both you and your business to thrive and grow. Lithuania is so much more than its capital though; its second city Kaunas is home to a bustling international airport, and the city’s thriving cultural scene is best exemplified by the renowned international jazz festival it hosts each year in the autumn. While Klaipeda, the country’s port city, offers ferry access to Scandinavia and Lithuania’s premier tourist attraction, Nida and the Curonian Spit.
Outside its cities and towns, Lithuania’s greatest asset is its nature. This is a country of fresh, verdant pine forest and calm, clear lakes, where escape to the countryside is never more than 30 minutes from your door.
