Regions

Traditionally, Lithuania has been divided into 5 distinct ethnographic regions, each with its own character and traditions. Discover them all!

In the south-eastern Dzūkija, forests and wetlands are at the source of the locals' profound connection to nature, where foraging and traditional cooking craft are still alive. Aukštaitija, the northeastern highland, known as the Lithuanian Lake District, offers stunning natural beauty and a taste of ancient brewing traditions. In the south, Suvalkija, or Sudovia (Suvalkija), reveals a land of rich culture and hearty potato-based dishes, while Lithuania Minor in the west enchants with its Germanic influences, maritime heritage, and the picturesque Curonian Spit. Probably the most distinct of them all, Samogitia (Žemaitija) even has its own dialect, which some linguists classify as a separate language. Each region, with its unique blend of history, nature, and gastronomy, forms a part of Lithuania's story, waiting to be discovered.
