The Baltic Sea
There are many beautiful sandy beaches in Lithuania, so if you happen to visit this stunning country in summer, you cannot miss the Baltic Sea. What could be better than a family holiday spent building sand castles and crashing into the waves with your kids? Although all the coastal towns are wonderful, Nida, on the Curonian Spit, has become the most popular and is surrounded by forests and well-preserved dunes.
It would be a shame not to try the most delicious Lithuanian dishes while traveling through the Baltic States. From cold beetroot soup to sweets to juicy meat to potato dishes, Lithuanian cuisine has it all! The best restaurants are in the bigger cities, but if you want a more authentic experience, visit a tavern on the highway, or ask your local friend to prepare homemade food for you!
