Days 8 and 9: Vilnius, Lithuania
From the itinerary: "We experience the cosmopolitan charm of a city that has been occupied by several European powers, each leaving their mark. We discover beautiful Baroque architecture and immerse ourselves in the vibrant arts scene. A day trip to Trakai unravels the mysteries of the medieval Karaim people." Come take a video tour with Andrew Quested:
Lithuania, like Latvia, is about the size of West Virginia (25,173 m2) and is 45% larger than Estonia. Lithuania has slightly more people than Oklahoma (3.4 million). If Lithuania was a US State, it would be 40th in area and 26th in population. Its capital, Vilnius, is home to only 15% of the population, making Lithuania far less concentrated than its Baltic sisters.
