Estonia, Latvia & Lithuania - Lithuania (PDF Chapter)
This is the Lithuania chapter from Lonely Planet’s Estonia, Latvia & Lithuania guidebook.
A land of wood and water, proud, independent Lithuania (Lietuva) is fast being recognised as one of Europe’s gems. Southernmost of the Baltic states, it’s a pocket-sized republic that’s a nature lover’s delight, yet lacks nothing in urban excitement.
- wander the backstreets of the beautiful baroque capital, Vilnius, looking for that perfect bar or bistro
- head to Curonian Spit to spend time cycling, swimming in the Baltic Sea or exploring hardy human settlements
- lose yourself in the whispering rushes, teeming birdlife and perfect serenity of the Nemunas Delta
- restaurants & accommodation
