One of the world’s oldest cultural and linguistic civilizations, archaeologists believe that Lithuania dates back as far as 10000 BC. It was the first country to cry out for independence from the USSR and has stoically withstood the onslaught of many invasions by the Poles, the Russians, Scandinavians and Germans. Fiercely protective of their independence, the Lithuanians proudly uphold their cultural and natural heritage.
Lithuania was also a hub for the European Jewish population and its capital Vilnius has several poignant remnants of Lithuania’s Jewish heritage within its city walls.
Beyond Vilnius, Lithuania’s coastline distinguishes itself with the Curonian Spit – a silver swathe of sand that lies along the Baltic Sea. Lush woods and wetlands make it a thriving habitat for birds and small animals. Uncover the depths of this ancient and mysterious land with Exeter International.
