Lithuania holidays are one of Europe's best-kept secrets. Here, travellers arrive to discover a country of boundless forests, clear lakes and white-sand beaches. Vilnius, also known as the City of the Iron Wolf, may be small but what it lacks in size, this compact capital city more than makes up for in charm and head-turning architecture. The exquisite Baroque Old Town steals the show, and the city as a whole reflects a diversity of influences from Germany, Poland, Russia and Scandinavia. The influence of legendary US rock musician, Frank Zappa, is not so clear, but still his famous statue on Kalinausko embodies the quirky nature of Lithuania.

Highlights of a holiday to Lithuania include visiting the atmospheric Hill of Crosses at Siaulilai, exploring the fairytale red brick medieval castle on Traikai, wandering the narrow streets and exploring the merchant houses of Klaipedia. Many Lithuania holidays begin by exploring the narrow winding streets of Vilnius, with a church on virtually every corner, before hiring a car and driving into the countryside, covered in endless forests, and to the Baltic coast with its white-sand beaches. Lithuania is easily combined with the other Baltic States, Estonia and Latvia.

To experience a completely different side to the country, head north to explore one of the most intriguing and beautiful features of the Baltic Coast: the Curonian Spit. Comprised of long sand dunes, the thin spit juts out across the sea forming an enclosed lagoon which has become an important site for seabirds.

Lithuania is the largest of the Baltic Republics. We would be sure to visit the Curonian Spit, one of the most interesting landscapes in the country which started as a sand bar around 6,000 years ago and is now a 98km strip of land through the Baltic Sea varying in width from 3.7km to 350m. Stretching from Kaipeda in the North to Nida in the South before you reach the border with the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad the Spit is a great place to explore by bike with a plethora of wildlife and woodlands.

Christina's Tips
1
In Vilnius, stay in the restored historic Mabre Residence, with a stone-walled restaurant and close location to the old town.
2
Amber – known as 'Baltic Gold', Lithuania is famed for, so this is the place to pick up some unique jewellery.
3
Sample Zeppelini: a hearty potato dumpling stuffed with meat and served with a creamy bacon sauce.
