A land of wood and water, proud, independent Lithuania (Lietuva) is fast being recognised as one of Europe’s gems. Southernmost of the Baltic states, it’s a pocket-sized republic that’s a nature-lover’s delight, yet lacks nothing in urban excitement. Lithuania’s foremost attraction is its stunning Baltic coastline, especially the unique silverr of white sand known as Curonian Spit. Lonely coastal wetlands lure migrating birds by the tens of thousands while inland, lush forests watch over burnished lakes. The capital, Vilnius, is a beguiling artists’ enclave, its timeworn courtyards, cobbled streets and baroque churches animated by the vibrant, optimistic culture of today.

Moreover, despite of Lithuania’s small size, it is known for its sport success, especially in basketball. If Latvia is “the country that sings”, Lithuania is definitely “the country that plays basketball”.
