Lithuania – Final impression

Lithuania

Today we’re saying “Goodbye Lithuania”.
How did you like this month on my blog? Would you like to visit Lithuania?

I have to say, I have very positive memories from this small country.
What I liked the most are two places – Vilnius and the Curonian Spit. ๐Ÿ™‚

Tomorrow, a new series on my blog will start. This time, it’s going to be about slightly more exotic country. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Lithuania – Kaunas

Kaunas, Lithuania

Kaunas is the second largest city in Lithuania. Well, it doesn’t really feel big. At least its nice Old Town is perfect for sightseeing on foot. You’ll find there a few interesting sites, i.e., Kaunas Castle (today’s picture).

Lithuania – Amber

Curonian Spit, Lithuania

While being close to the coast, think of the Baltic treasures. ๐Ÿ˜€
Amber can be still found on the beach. So search for it, while walking along the coast.

When I was a little girl, searching for amber was a must during summer holidays. ๐Ÿ™‚

p.s. If you want to learn more about Baltic amber – visit Amber Museum in Palanga.

Lithuania – (on the way to) Kaliningrad

Curonian Spit, Lithuania

I didn’t mention before that the Curonian Spit belongs to two countries, Lithuania and Russia. And from Nida, is very nearby to Russia – Kaliningrad (Kaliningrad Oblast).
(If you have a valid Russian visa you can try to cross the boarder, however I heard that a public transport doesn’t cover this path so well.)

p.s. This picture was taken in Nida, Lithuania.

Lithuania – Nida

Curonian Spit, Lithuania

Nida is probably the most known town of the Curonian Spit.
Like other places in the Curonian Spit, Nida offers lots to do in summer, i.e., different outdoor activities and fresh tasty fish for eating. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Of course, Lithuania is not a Mediterranean country, but Baltic Sea is also charming, and here you can really enjoy it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Lithuania – Curonian Spit

Curonian Spit, Lithuania

The Curonian Spit is a 98 km long sandy peninsula.
It’s also quite narrow (ranges from 400 m up to 4 km).

The Curonian Spit is a very nice area, and not without a reason it’s on the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

For the next few days, I’ll tel lyou more about the Curonian Spit. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lithuania – Crosses

Hill of Crosses, Lithuania

In 1863, people started to bring crosses to the Hill of Crosses. The installation of crosses was forbidden for many years (e.g., during Soviet times) and even destroyed a few times. But people didn’t give up and were bringing crosses secretly at night.
These days, everyone can bring his own cross here.
