A tiny Baltic nation in northern central Europe, Lithuania is a country happy to finally be free of Soviet rule. Lithuania has embraced many European traditions, capitalism among them. Lithuania has had one of the fastest growing economies in Europe and is a highly developed country. The capital, Vilnius, was the European Capital of Culture in 2009, an honor given to a different European city every year, and in return, the city organizes many European cultural events throughout the year.
The primary language is Lithuanian, which is quite difficult to learn (however, learning a few words can be helpful). Russian is spoken by most of the population and about a third of the population (mostly young people) speaks English. The universal language of friendliness will serve you well in Lithuania, a country where the people are ready and willing to welcome you to their little, rarely explored, corner of the world.Historical
The capital, Vilnius, is an excellent place to delve into the history of Lithuania, which gained independence from the Soviet Union only twenty years ago. The Museum of Genocide Victims (also known as the KGB Museum) tells of tragedy, heartache, and horror as it depicts the story of over fifty years of occupation by the Soviets through several exhibits and a tour of the KGB prison in the basement.
