Knock knock, Lithuania
It’s always interesting to find a new door to knock on. Or an old, forgotten one, which brings back so many memories. You knock, and we swing the door open for you. We want to tell you about the people who used to live here. And those who still do. About their discoveries, their sense and taste of Lithuania. About their connection to the majestic Lithuanian history, to the magical thrill of Vilnius and its mysterious Baroque longing. About their hot nights in the Old Town’s courtyards and their long walks through the streets of Kaunas, the undertones of modern architecture they admire, the feelings they get in exuberant music festivals and galleries booming with creativity, their discoveries in small coffee shops and cosy restaurants. Nothing is half-hearted in Lithuania, so let’s travel to a country full of culture. Our true Lithuania.
We are small – no one is saying we aren’t. But there are so many beautiful places to visit in Lithuania and we have so much to show! First of all, our welcoming hearts. Then our cities, woven with history. The roads leading to the sea, where ships meet. The Curonian Spit, blown by the wind, natural, and so very genuine. The sea-coast, adorned with fishing boats and kiteboards. The refreshing mineral water springs and the pine forests, filled with fragrant air. We just have so much in this little green patch of earth. And you definitely have to see it all.
From ancient times to now Lithuanian art plays a special role in our hearts. The power of creativity lives inside us and allows us to make steps that lead us further. The sound of breathing may sometimes become music for a film. The wind that blows hair at the sea – song lyrics. A kicked road stone – a sculpture, a friend’s letter sent from a distant place – a piece of painting. Creation does not begin and does not end. It lives inside us, allows us to make steps that we wouldn’t dare to make, counts codes that we couldn’t grasp if not for the power of creativity. There would be no life without creation. There would be no Lithuania that we have at present. That is what makes Lithuanian culture so special.
Lithuanian nature is our greatest treasure. With its spectrum of shades of green, the freshness of its clean water, and its captivating landscapes, it seems as if the gifts of Lithuania’s nature are inexhaustible for its people and visitors. Enjoy them, while protecting and nurturing Lithuania’s greatest treasure.
We love both active and passive leisure and we do everything with sincerity. Whether it’s on bustling city streets or at a festival in the woods, on a hike through the wetlands or on a race track, in the basket of a hot air balloon or under the sails of a boat, at the seaside or in a tiny village, according to tradition or something completely new, we dive into it head first, racing, competing, and sometimes trying to prove to ourselves and others just how strong we actually are. Join us! Entertainment in Lithuania is waiting for you – there’s a lot of things to do here!

Honey, wine, and mountain ice. Such were the ingredients of the first ice cream served at the table of Roman emperors. Dairy-based ice cream that we are used to date back to the 17th century, according to the European ice cream association Euroglaces. Today, Lithuanians can claim to be the world's biggest fans of ice cream. They eat an average of 7 litres per year or about one and a half servings per week. With this variety of flavours, it's a surprise they don't eat even more!
