5 brilliant reasons to visit Lithuania

Southernmost of Europe’s Baltic States, Lithuania is a charming holiday destination, offering gorgeous landscapes and a plethora of monuments and attractions to explore. The country has a humid continental climate, with warm, dry summers reaching around 25*C, offering great conditions to explore its capital city, surrounding towns and beautiful Baltic Sea coasts.

Check out our five top reasons to choose Lithuania as your next holiday destination!

1. Breathtaking landscapes

Lithuania is a gorgeous lowland country with untouched landscapes to enjoy. The town of Nida boasts brilliant scenery in particular, with some of the highest sand dunes in Europe. Palanga town, on the shore of the Baltic Sea, offers a variety of long, beautiful beaches and sand dunes to explore under the Lithuanian sun.

A visit to the renowned Hill of Crosses is essential on your holiday here, on a site of pilgrimage about 12 kilometres north of the city of Šiauliai. The spectacular sight of thousands of legendary crosses, dating back to the 19th century, is not to be missed!

2. Vibrant Vilnius

Vilnius is a fantastic city to visit on your Lithuanian break, as its vibrant capital, known for its baroque architecture, largely found in its medieval Old Town. The city is home to the pretty Bernardine Gardens, a popular public park located on the right bank of the Vilnia River between the Gediminas Tower and Bernardine Monastery – a perfect spot for a relaxing picnic! You can also visit the Cathedral of Vilnius in the city, the main Roman Catholic Cathedral of Lithuania located just off Cathedral Square in the Old Town.

For fantastic, panoramic views of the capital city, a journey up the Vilnius Television Tower located in the Karoliniškės microdistrict of Vilnius is a must, as Lithuania’s tallest building, standing at 326.5 metres high. Visitors can go up a revolving circular observation platform for breathtaking views and gorgeous photographs to take home.

3. Curonian Spit

The Curonian Spit is a 98 kilometres-long, curved sand-dune spit that separates the Curonian Lagoon from the Baltic Sea coast. The unique sand dune peninsula dates back to prehistoric times and is definitely worth a visit on your Lithuanian getaway.

4. Delicious cuisine

Food-lovers are in for a treat on a holiday to Lithuania, where the cuisine on offer is hearty and delicious, featuring ingredients suited perfectly to its cool and moist northern climate; notably including barley, potatoes, rye, beets, greens and freshly grown mushrooms.

Soup is a popular meal in Lithuania, including beetroot soup Šaltibarščiai, usually served with traditional black rye bread or potatoes. Cepelinai, a type of dumpling made from grated and riced potatoes and stuffed with ground meat or cheese, is a tasty and renowned dish here. For sweet-toothed holidaymakers, a taste of Zagareliai, sweet crisp pastry pieces, is a must!

5. Array of attractions

Lithuania boasts an array of attractions to enjoy all-year round. Trakai Historical National Park, located west of Vinius, is a brilliant attraction to visit on a holiday to Lithuania. The park boasts beautiful landscapes made up of forests, lakes and impressive monuments, including the impressive Trakai Insular Castle.

Another great place to visit is Gediminas Tower, the remaining part of the Upper Castle in Vilnius, which also offers a popular museum to explore and Europos Parkas, a 50-hectare open-air museum located 17 kilometres from Vilnius.
