Lithuania is often described as Europes best kept secret as it never fails to impress visitors with stunning natural beauty and fascinating historical sites. For a small country it can offer so much. There are lakes and forests and white sandy beaches of the Baltic, which include the Curonian Spit known as the Baltics Sahara, to charming cities such as Vilnius. Small and easily explored Vilnius with its cobbled streets provides a character and charm so often missing from modern cities. Every corner provides a glimpse of its long history. For the more adventurous the seaside resort of Palanga, set among sand dunes, offers a modern and lively resort. A visit to Lithuania is an opportunity to see the traditional set alongside the modern to make any visit truly memorable.
