Travel Route: Lithuania

Travel Route: Lithuania

Lithuania – that wonderful little country with a strong history. Well placed on the Baltic Sea it was an empire that dominated the region – and today it proves its strength, beauty, and charm in its well nuzzled location next to Russia, Poland, and Latvia. With its magical Curonian Spit on the coast and its quirky Hill of Crosses in the middle, Lithuania has a little bit of everything and a little something for everyone.   

This is a travel Route through Lithuania. It visits all the major cities and you can do day trips to all major sights.

I’ve listed 3 sights/activities by City in the form of photos. I am a highly visual person, who loves colour, and is easily enticed by it. Perhaps you will be to.
