Vilnius: from another point. Gorgeous & unique

It’s located in Vilnius city eastern side. This is the smallest regional park in Lithuania, but size doesn’t mean anything, right? The park was created by the idea to save forests and reserves in  Pavilnys. So let’s get started!

Vilnius: the beautiful capital of Lithuania

Vilnius: the beautiful capital of Lithuania When I chose Vilnius for my Erasmus I didn’t know anything about Lithuania, but I wanted go to somewhere in the north and this place inspired me. When I said to my friends and to my family that I was going there, I usually heard this questions: “What? And where is it?” or “Why? Why among all the European cities you have chosen just this one?”

7 places in Lithuania for the traveler who has seen it all

Paris, London, Tokyo, New York, you name it. The destinations everybody talks about and puts on t-shirts; the modern wonders, swarming with tourists and scammers. Everything is already seen, written about and became cliché. Finding something fresh and unseen can become a rather tricky task for the traveler who has grown tired of Eiffel Towers and Big Bens. But would you believe that a small country right in the geographical center of Europe could be that breeze of exhilarating wind you were looking for? Small but ambitious, Lithuania is ready to prove itself even to the most demanding explorer. Before booking your tickets, take a look at some of the most unusual places it has to offer.

Welcome To Lithuania: The Land of The Beautiful Ladies

Just as the lyrics of a song from a famous Lithuanian band Inculto say: welcome to Lithuania, the land of the beautiful ladies. Indeed, it‘s quite commonly known that Lithuanian women are pretty gorgeous and being a 100% Lithuanian I am flattered to hear that. However, beautiful women are not the only reason to visit my country. Lithuania is an undiscovered pearl of the Baltics: it‘s safe here, cities are clean, we have lots of beautiful nature, it‘s much cheaper here than in western or northern Europe, we like and respect foreign travellers, cities are not overcrowded with people what makes them cosy and pleasant to stay.

5 Alternative Places to Visit in Kaunas

Lithuania is famous for its historical heritage. Fascinating castles, churches and old towns attract a lot of tourists. But what is not so talked about is the artistical side of this country. Every city and town in Lithuania have a cultural center, many of them at least one gallery or art museum. Art is very appreciated in Lithuania. The ethnographic art forms, like weaving, braiding, knitting and crocheting have been the most popular for a long time. Recently the society has understood that it’s not enough to cherish what’s old, we have to create something new and unique. That’s why the number of modern art institutions, museums, galleries, exhibitions and art-related sights has increased rapidly through the past twenty years. Kaunas is the second biggest city in Lithuania. It is great for tourists because it holds a lot of different kinds of attractions. Art-related, hipster-attracting sights are one of them. Here I am sharing my artsy experience in this wonderful city – the five places to visit if you are into art and creativity or if you are an open-minded person seeking for something different and unique in your travel experience.

Trakai, Lithuania – a destination for every season

Lithuania is perhaps not the first name that comes to mind when deciding where to spend your holidays. Even though Lithuania is not on many people’s tourist radar, it should be. It has a lot to offer for tourists interested in both medieval history and the post–World War II era. And in Lithuania, Trakai is definitely one of the highlights.
