Lithuania Tours, Travel & Backpacker Adventure
Lithuania is the largest of the Baltic States contrasting scenery with forests, sand dunes, vast plains, lakes and hills. Join a Lithuania adventure travel expedition to explore the remarkable heritage of baroque, gothic, neoclassical and renaissance architecture which is excellently preserved in churches, monasteries, palaces and mansions. With a long pagan history and a distinctive language, Lithuania has a strong independent streak despite its larger and more powerful neighbors and was the last country to adopt Christianity in Europe in 1387 and the first to declare independence from the USSR in 1990.
Visit Vilnius, the capital city, which is often called the city of Baroque because of the abundance of buildings in the medieval style. Adventure travelers love visiting the old city of Vilnius which has been recognized by UNESCO as one of the biggest historical and architectural complexes in Eastern Europe! Vilnius itself is easy to explore on foot, with numerous little courtyards and tiny cobble-stoned back streets to navigate, or you can take the weight off your feet at one of the many great outdoor cafes. The tallest bungee jump in Europe is found here! The Cathedral-Basilica of St. Stanislaus and St. Ladislaus, Dawn Gate, Gediminas Castle and Museum, Genocide Victims' Museum and St. Anne’s Church are generally considered by adventure travelers to be the major sights of Vilnius.
