Before coming to Lithuania, try to answer to yourself what you wish to see and do here. Despite being a relatively small country, Lithuania has much to offer to a visitor, from many types of leisure activities and entertainment to a wide list – of around 1000 – of sightseeing objects. Therefore, we recommend you try to see more of the country, not just its principal towns.
You are in Lithuania. Feel the surrounding green nature: meadows and hills are everywhere. Hear how the land is praised by singing birds. Five national parks are waiting for you. Travel through refreshing forests, see cultural monuments: castles, mounds, churches, crosses. Discover Lithuanian history and art. Taste Lithuania, literally. You are in Lithuania.
Lithuania is a relatively small country, but you will be surprised at how much there is to see and visit. You can choose among different ways to explore the country – you may want to limit your sightseeing to UNESCO or national heritage objects or you may want to visit individual ethnographic regions to get a feeling of their lifestyles, dialects, behavioural specifics, or authentic cuisine.
Before coming to Lithuania, find out if a visa is required and how it can be obtained. A visa-free entry to Lithuania is granted to citizens of 78 states; yet, arrivals from some of them must be holders of diplomatic, service, special or biometric passports. Citizens of other states should apply to Lithuanian diplomatic missions or consular offices for a Schengen or national visa.
Once you have reached our country, whether by air, water or land, do not limit your stay to its bigger towns - visit the whole country. You will see that the condition of roads is truly good here for travelling by car and that a train or a bus can take you to practically any place of the country. Getting comfortable bed-and-breakfast accommodation will not be a problem wherever you decide to go.
