The Best of Lithuania
Boasting the largest medieval Old Town in Eastern Europe, as well as a fairy tale castle, Lithuania's capital is a beautiful city, by far the country's main attraction. Vilnius is home to a plethora of quaint streets, historic squares, hip bars and lush parks. Climbing the hill in Kalnai Park is recommended for panoramic views over the city, as is a visit to the ancient Gediminas Tower.
The jewel in Lithuania's long Baltic coastline, the Curonian Spit is a 98km long stretch of sand between the Baltic Sea and the Curonian Lagoon that is just 4km wide at its widest point. Shared with Russia, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is dominated by pine forest and sand dunes, home to elk, deer, and wild boar.
The main attraction in Siauliai is the Hill of Crosses, which is exactly as described. More than 100,000 crosses sit atop an earthen mound, but no one knows for sure how the tradition of placing crosses here came about. It is an important Christian pilgrimage site and the number of crosses is growing all the time.
Former capital of Lithuania, Kaunas was the European Capital of Culture in 2022. And it's easy to see why, with its beautiful Old Town, rich history, and diverse culture. Nearby Kaunas Lagoon is worth exploring. And the Ninth Fort is worth a visit for those interested in Lithuanian history - it was a labour camp during both the Nazi and Soviet occupations of Lithuania during WWII.
Lithuania's former medieval capital, Trakai is scenically located on the shore of Lake Galvė. It's located just 28 kilometres from Vilnius, so can easily be combined with a city break in the capital. The main attraction in the city is Trakai Castle, which sits on an island in the middle of the lake, and dates back to the 1400s.
As Lithuania's westernmost city on the Baltic sea coast, Klaipeda and its surroundings are popular with both domestic and international travellers. It is also home to the country's only major seaport, crucial for the Lithuanian economy. The beautiful beaches of the Curonian Spit are also close by.
