A place to build the life you want
In Lithuania, there’s no need to choose between a fulfilling career and a fulfilling life.
Work-life balance is a key part of the Lithuanian work culture. Here, both employers and employees value quality leisure time, and create plentiful opportunities for it. Instead of wasting hours on long commutes, locals prefer to squeeze in a morning run or a yoga session at the park. And with a generous parental leave policy, quality time with the little ones is a given. All this adds up to a perfectly balanced life in Lithuania.

Cities that inspire
From Baroque Vilnius to Modernist Kaunas and artsy Klaipėda, each Lithuanian city has its own unique feel to it. What unites them is the abundance of action – from jazz festivals to psy-trance parties, and from slam poetry nights to outdoor yoga sessions. No matter if you’re a foodie, a movie-goer or modern art lover, your calendar will always be full.
Nature is everywhere
With over a third of the country covered in forests, nature is at everyone’s doorstep in Lithuania. Forests, lakes, rivers, 90 kilometres of seaside and a wide network of nature trails are all waiting for experience-hungry explorers. The country is truly green, so there’s plenty of opportunities to escape the urban hustle and bustle without actually leaving the city!
In Lithuania, days are shaped by nature and culture, not by long commutes and work hours.
In Lithuania, you get to focus on what really matters. With one of the most generous parental leave policies in the EU, families get plenty of time to bond. And a wide selection of non-formal education options and kid-friendly activities (from walking trails to petting zoos) guarantees that the little ones are both entertained and developed.
