Beautiful and green Lithuania is situated on the coast of the Baltic Sea and is the southernmost of the three Baltic States, the other two being Latvia and Estonia. According to some sources, the geographical centre of Europe is in Lithuania, just outside its capital Vilnius. The stunning nature and lovely combination of heritage and modern architecture are only few things you can expect to find in Lithuania. There are many highlight places to visit – from the historical center of capital city to the wild beaches of the Curonian Spit, which both are inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Lithuanian language is the oldest living language from the Indo-European language family and shares many features with other archaic (but extinct) languages from the same language family, such as Sanskrit, Latin and Ancient Greek.
Lithuania is famous not only for the basketball, hot
air ballooning and cold beetroot soup called šaltibarščiai, but also for the one of the fastest internet in the
world, its lasers, biotechnologies and growing film industry. Did you know that
one of the best rated TV shows in history – HBO’s Chernobyl was filmed here?
The real is beautiful is our motto, so come and discover!

It is a lively and welcoming city – a hub of science, culture and diversity.
