Beautiful in all four seasons

The variety of seasons and weather ensures life is never boring in Lithuania. You can experience all four seasons here: in winter, fun in the snow, and in warmer months, active leisure time in nature, by the sea or the many lakes and rivers – all without having to worry about things like tornadoes, volcanoes, and tsunamis.

Nature front and centre

Whether you’re in or outside the city centre, there’s green everywhere. Forests blend into urban sites, while ancient woods and swamps host rare animals and birds. Always having nature only steps away makes it extremely easy to switch from work to relaxation. An extensive network of well-marked trails allows you to easily escape the hustle-and-bustle of the city into a world of forest, field and flower.
