It’s welcoming, intriguing and easy to reach from most other parts of Europe, yet somehow Lithuania is often given the cold shoulder. But if you’re the kind of traveller who likes escaping the crowds and trying someplace new, let our map of Lithuania help you find your feet.

Sparkling lakes and forests await in the Lithuanian countryside, where pretty patches of farmland are stitched together by single-track roads. Sandy beaches and Gothic castles topped with cone-shaped turrets make for perfect pit stops.

Not everything is as sleepy as it seems, though. In the thickly forested Žemaitija National Park, visitors can explore a former Soviet missile base that once held enough nukes to flatten Europe.

Wherever your travels take you, leave time for long days and lazy evenings exploring Lithuania’s baroque masterpiece, Vilnius. There’s oodles of charm squeezed into the capital’s narrow streets, along with enough cool cultural diversions to keep you busy for a week or more.
