A. Lithuania is situated on the eastern Baltic coast and borders Latvia in the north, the Kaliningrad region
of the Russian Federation and Poland in the southwest, and Belarus in the southwest and east. The
geometrical centre of Europe lies in eastern Lithuania 25km north of its capital Vilnius. The landscape
varies between lowland plains and hilly uplands and has a complex network of rivers.
B. Lithuania has historically been the least developed of the Baltic republics, with a smaller industrial
base and greater dependence on agriculture. Sugar beet, cereals, potatoes and vegetables are the
main crops. Lithuania's foreign trade has gradually changed during the 19908, and now the European
Union, not Russia, is its main trading partner.
C. Lithuanian is the mother tongue for 80% of the population. After the country joined the European
Union in 2004 this language has become one of the EU official languages. Lithuania has a large
number of dialects for such a small territory, including High Lithuanian and Low Lithuanian.
D. Lithuania offers different opportunities for a nice vacation. You can explore a range of large sand
dunes and pine forests while hiking in the Curonian Spit National Park, take part in some action sports
in Nida, a village that makes a true paradise for sailing, windsurfing, paragliding and kiting, or try out
more extreme sports, such as hot-air ballooning and gliding.
E. Those who are interested in folklore may enjoy their stay in Lithuania in any season of the year. The
Mardi Gras celebrations are held in various Lithuanian cities and small towns at the beginning of
February. The Folklore Festival is held in Vilnius' Old Town during in May. There you can see craft
fairs, taste traditional dishes, join song and parties and listen to psalms.
F. Lithuania's TV market is dominated by commercial channels. The radio market is similarly
competitive. Lithuania's media are free and operate independently of the state, and there are no
government-owned newspapers. However, politicians do occasionally attempt to influence editorial
G. In cities and towns there are buses and trolleybuses, which usually run from 05.00 to 23.00, but times
do vary between routes. You can't pay the fare to the driver in cash but you can buy coupons from
him. Coupons can be also bought at news kiosks before boarding. Minibuses are less crowded but
more expensive.
