Lithuania – Old Town of Vilnius

Vilnius, Lithuania

I’ll show you a few more pictures from Vilnius to convince you that Lithuanian capital is really worth visiting.

To prove my words, I have to mention that the Old Town of Vilnius is listed as the UNESCO World Heritage Site. And Vilnius was the European Capital of Culture in 2009.

Lithuania – Poland

Lithuania

Today, a short historical information.
Maybe, I write about it, because I’m Polish; well, the reason good like any other. 😉
For over 200 years, Lithuania and Poland were very close as a two-state union called the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth.

There are many storks in Poland, thus I chose for today’s post, a picture with a stork (taken in Lithuania). 🙂

Lithuania – Language

Lithuania

Lithuanian is the official language in Lithuania. I believe many people still understand Russian and Polish; as well as English (among the younger generation).

I speak Polish and didn’t have so many problems understating people in Lithuania; some of them were even speaking perfect Polish.
But for example, in Latvia, I didn’t understand anything.
