Travel to Lithuania
DMC Lithuania: One of Europe's greatest treasures must surely be Lithuania, it made third place in Lonely Planet's top ten for 2015. Unusual and quirky, Lithuania is a small, but fascinating country, located on the Baltic sea. It has lovely beaches, unspoiled nature, beautiful meadows, castles, churches and wonderful towns. Vilnius is a treasure trove of baroque, gothic buildings with cobblestoned streets in a wonderful mediaeval setting. With many restaurants, bars and a vibrant nightlife - and beaches, sea, hills and forests for team building activities all over our country, it is truly a great place for incentives and events. At Baltic Travel Group DMC we would love to assist you with your requests.

Travel Highlights Lithuania
Vilnius, The capitol of Lithuania
A visit to Lithuania would not be complete without at least a day trip to this vibrant city. Within its confines you will see one of the largest surviving medieval quarters in Europe. Other popular must-see attractions include the KGB Museum, which is located within a former Soviet prison, and the 13th century Higher Castle, which has a magnificent view of the city center.
The Castle on the Lake
Visit the Trakai Historial National Park which is about 30km by train from the capital. There you will see the infamous restored Island Castle that juts into Lake Galvė. The Trakai History Museum found within the park tells the story of the castle.
The Hill of Crosses
This manmade monument, known as the Hill of Crosses in Siauliai, is a mount of thousands of crosses left there throughout the years by visitors, pilgrims and some even by newlyweds on their wedding day. Many of the crosses contain makrings with photos of loved ones or even personal messages.
Treetop Walking Path
The treetop walking path, which is located in Anykščiai Pinewood is the only treetop path in Eastern Europe. It I a 300 meter walk above the trees with panoramic views of the forest from the main observation platform.
The second largest city within Lithuania, situated in the valley of two of the longest rivers : Neris and Nemunas. The city has seen many highs and lows, but has remained the source of forces for resistance, the guard of national identity, and was once the temporary capitol of Lithuania. Visit both the M.K. Ciurlionis Picture Gallery and the Devils’ Museum to see some stunning artwork and sculptures.
Program idea Lithuania
The self-proclaimed “Republic” of Užupis is Vilnius’ Bohemian and artistic district.
It has its own anthem, constitution, president, bishop, two churches, the Bernadine Cemetery – one of the oldest in the city -, seven bridges, and its own guardian called The Bronze Angel of Užupis, who was put in the centre of the district in 2002.
Dating back to the 16th century, Užupis is one of Vilnius’ oldest districts and despite its current prestigious status, was formerly the city’s poorest area and home to a number of manual workers and a red light-district.
During the Soviet era, the authorities let Užupis go to ruin, and it quickly gained notoriety as the roughest districts in the city. Since Lithuania regained its independence in 1991, artists came and took advantage of the cheap accommodation, and moreover, the city’s art academy is located across the bridge from Bernadinų Gardens.
Now its thriving creative community hosts regular fashion festivals, concerts, exhibitions and poetry evenings.
In Lithuanian, Užupis means ‘behind the river’ and this is proclaimed in a number of languages on its entrance sign.
The Vilnelė is the district’s river, and is home to Lithuania’s only mermaid – she’s not real, don’t worry! But she lives on the embankment, and those who give in to her charms will remain in Užupis forever.
