Lithuania Travel Guide

“Blame it on the Baltic sea breeze or the almost-endless midsummer days: Lithuania has an otherworldly quality. In the southernmost of the Baltic states, beaches are spangled with amber and woodlands are alive with demonic statues. Medieval-style mead and traditional wood-carving never went out of style.” – Lonely Planet

When to go 

The weather is the most pleasant in late spring or summer (late May – August) but even then it can be rainy with chilly nights so bring layers. Fall is brisk but beautiful and the winters in Lithuania are long and cold, lasting from November through April at times.
