All our Lithuania collections:

Stationed on the Baltic outposts of Europe, Lithuania is anything but backwater. Proud of its heritage, Lithuania loves a good national celebration, and it's got plenty of natural, historic, artistic and architectural assets to show off about. And most of the best places to stay in Lithuania are well placed to make the most of all it has to offer.

Once Lithuania had an empire which stretched all the way to the Black Sea, then it vanished from the map as it was swallowed whole by the USSR, but now this rebellious powerhouse is back, and a fully fledged, national flag waving member of the EU and of NATO.

Tiny Vilnius has a spire-topped UNESCO listed old heart, but is also known as a hardcore clubbing scene. So for many this perfect city-break destination is one of the best places to stay in Lithuania. And that's the kind of unexpected contradiction which makes Lithuania such a quirky, vibrant destination.

Lithuania sits on the knife edge between political powers and has suffered throughout history, being pushed and pulled by the Soviets and the Nazis, but it has a very clear national identity, and a tradition of religious harmony unheard of in the region. This dramatic history might be a surprise for some visitors, but it's certainly worth delving into.

  • The medieval capital, Kernave is now a World Heritage Listed archaeological site;
  • the beautifully restored Trakai Island Castle, which sits on an island, was once an important stronghold in the days of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania;
  • and of course there's Vilnius, with its mix of Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Neoclassical architecture, its 65 churches, and seemingly endless list of cultural sights.

But there's much to recommend in the countryside too:

  • The Moletai Lakeland is a region of 200 different sized lakes, dotted with charming little resorts;
  • the Curonian Spit is famous for its white beaches backed by magical sand dunes and seaboard forests concealing fascinating old villages;
  • but if you're looking for perfect beaches its the seaside resort of Palanga you'll want.

It's also worth seeking out Lithuania's oddities, its Hill of Witches, decorated with sculptures from the land's myths and legends, and the Hill of Crosses, where over one hundred thousand crosses have been contributed, by the faithful, and the wonderfully vintage 19th Century spa town of Druskininkai.
