At the end of May I was working in Lithuania for a week, including a weekend, which gave me a chance to see something of the country. Lithunaia has a lot in common with the other Baltic states (small populations, ex Soviet republic, linguistacally related to Latvia, geography), and yet is also very distinct from the othe two. This is mainly due to its long association with Polnad, and it has a much more central European feel, both culturally and architecturally.

The coast is very like the Baltic coast in Poland and Latvia, though the resorts are distintly Lithuaian, and the national park of the Neringa spit is, in my opinion, one of the nicest coastal regions in Europe.
