What does Lithuania have to offer

This Northern European country at the center of Europe will charm you with its medieval towns and cobbled streets, dense forests for foraging and wildlife spotting, and quirky cultural festivals where you can dance and drink with the locals. As a study abroad destination, it offers all the history and culture of the major European destinations, without the crowds and high costs.

With the renowned Curonian Spit, a UNESCO World Heritage Site of spectacular shifting sand dunes (which can travel over nine miles a year) and five national parks within reach by train or car, getting out in nature is easy.

In this affordable European country, with its snowy winters and pleasant summers, you can escape the fast pace and stress of larger metropolises and soak up slower living.
