Lithuania

This Baltic state is a nature-lover's delight with lush forests, lakes, a stunning coastline, as well as incredible archtiecture.

In the southernmost of the Baltic states lies Lithuania, with amber-spangled beaches and sprawling woodlands aplenty.

A city of churches and baroque finery, the capital city of Vilnius’ cobblestoned charms haven’t gone unnoticed by tourists.   As Europe's last country to be Christianised, pagan history still soaks the land, with Curonian Spit, splintering from the Baltic coast, awash in folklore. Complementing the sparkling lakes, forests of birch and pine, and acres of farmland; in Lithuania, there's ample space to breathe.

When to Go

Short summers and icy winters mean beach time in the Baltics is best enjoyed from June to August. Either side of summer, May or September, is perfect for exploring the medieval Old Town without the crowds, discovering deserted dunes, and for explorers keen on wildlife, March-April or September-October is the best time to visit for bird watching. Autumn can be an extraordinarily beautiful season in which to visit, with the golden-brown leaves of deciduous trees contrasting with the dark-green pines.
