Aiste’s home country, and surely a country that everyone should visit. We made this short film to show you what to expect of this baltic state. From skiing, to paragliding, from beach to forest, Lithuania has it all. A special note to the very welcoming people over there, and a big thank you to all our friends.
Some of the locations include Birstonas, Vilnius, Klaipeda, Nida, Druskininkai and many more.
Lithuania is the southernmost of the three Baltic States – and the largest and most populous of them. The country is predominantly flat, with a few low hills in the western uplands and eastern highlands. Forests cover just over 30 % of the country.
Geographical size: 65 286 km2

A land of wood and water, proud, independent Lithuania (Lietuva) is fast being recognised as one of Europe’s gems. Southernmost of the Baltic states, it’s a pocket-sized republic that’s a nature-lover’s delight, yet lacks nothing in urban excitement.
Lithuania’s foremost attraction is its stunning Baltic coastline, especially the unique sliver of white sand known as Curonian Spit. Lonely coastal wetlands lure migrating birds by the tens of thousands while inland, lush forests watch over burnished lakes.
The capital, Vilnius, is a beguiling artists’ enclave, its timeworn courtyards, cobbled streets and baroque churches animated by the vibrant, optimistic culture of today.
Further afield, remnants of Soviet times – a disused nuclear missile site (now a museum to the Cold War) and a Soviet sculpture park – are reminders of a dark recent past, while the Hill of Crosses and Orvydas stone garden stand testament to the land’s enduring faith.
