Is Lithuania Worth Visiting?

Lithuania, located in the northeastern part of Europe, stands as an untouched gem on the Baltic Sea coast. Known for its rich historical heritage, this country boasts a charming blend of Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque architecture, particularly evident in its medieval capital, Vilnius. Its lush nature reserves, such as the Aukstaitija National Park and the Curonian Spit, offer breathtaking views and diverse wildlife to explore. Visitors to Lithuania can expect an array of experiences from 14th-century castles, amber artwork, and folklore traditions to savoring traditional Lithuanian cuisine, which is deeply rooted in the farm-to-table philosophy. Furthermore, Lithuania's rich layers of history are evident in its Jewish Heritage, hill forts, and Soviet-era structures and memorials.

I have been to Lithuania several times. Their capital, Vilnius, is incredibly charming and beautiful, full of historical and cultural attractions to see. The city of Trakai, about 30 minutes away from Vilnius, is stunning and very lively in the summer, and it is also home to the famous and beautifully restored old castle. Kaunas is a smaller city, but I definitely recommend visiting it too. The infrastructure between the main cities is great, and their tram/bus network reaches most parts of the country in a reasonable time. Generally speaking, the country has a very unique atmosphere, very friendly people, and has a lot to offer.

Local tips

My recommendations: - Trakai Castle - Vilnius Cathedral - Palanga or Klaipeda (cities on the Baltic coast) - Curonian Spit and a hiking trip to Neringa Kalnas, to see the artistic sculptures of dragons, goblins and witches - Siauliai and the Hill of Crosses - Eat a lot of chives!

About me

I am Italian and I live in Vilnius, Lithuania. It is my home and one of the greenest capitals in Europe. I like travelling and seeing new countries through the eyes of locals. I love karaoke! I am fluent in English and Italian. My dream would be to speak Arabic but at the moment I just limit myself to listening to any Arab music! :D
