A thriving modern counterculture meets something Pagan lurking in the woods
Sveiki, and welcome to Lithuania. Since the end of Soviet control in 1990, Lithuania has become a thoroughly modern country. At least the cities have, and the rest is trying to catch up. Vilnius, the capital, is a manageably small modern city with Baroque churches that will dazzle and a restaurant and nightlife scene that beats most neighbouring companies and rivals many in Europe. There’s a big student population, which brings youthful vibes and EU-optimism to the place, and boulevards that rival many more well known European capitals. If you want to experience the contrast of bubbling, youthful urban populations with rural ways of life that have persevered for centuries, then VISIT LITHUANIA!
