Tourism

Lithuania, with its charming cities, lovely, unspoiled countryside, well-developed rural tourism network, unique coastal area of almost 100 km and its unforgettable UNESCO World Heritage masterpieces, receives over 2.2 million tourists a year. The country has 5 national and 30 regional parks filled with virgin forests and untouched marshlands inhabited by protected wild animals and rare birds. About 22,000 rivers, rivulets and over 3,000 beautiful lakes make Lithuania an attractive countryside tourism destination. The biggest tourist flows are from Poland, Russia, Germany, Latvia, Finland, Belarus, United Kingdom and Italy.

Modern SPA centres provide high quality beauty and medical treatments for a reasonable price in Lithuania. Ancient traditional methods of treatment are combined with modern technologies. For example, Druskininkai is one of Lithuania’s well-known resorts. Mineral water springs were discovered here in the 18th century and some of the highest quality healing mud in Europe was also found there. These unique natural resources are now being used to rebalance and restore the harmony of mind, body and soul. This type of relaxation is popular not only among Lithuanians, but also among foreign tourists – Poles, Russians, Germans, etc.

A large variety of festivals take place during the year in major cities and resorts. These include classical and jazz music festivals, folk, theatre and film festivals. Music and theatre performances have always been world-class in Lithuania. Foreign theatre groups, opera and ballet companies, and popular music groups include Lithuania in their world touring schedules as well. Vilnius, the beautiful capital of Lithuania, was selected as the European Capital of Culture in the year 2009.
