The Baltic Holidays, Ruta Sepetys & 'Between Shades of Gray' Connection
Lithuania, the most southern of the Baltic countries, is a friendly and welcoming nation. Lithuania may be small but it is feisty, surprising the world over a decade ago when its brave shouts of protest over Soviet rule became the catalyst that led to the demise of the Soviet occupation of the Baltics.
In Vilnius, life still revolves around the charming Old Town, the skyline dotted with church spires and the cobbled streets leading you into courtyards full of curiosity and wonderful architecture. In recent years many buildings have been sympathetically renovated, yet some still wait patiently to be restored to their former glory.
Vilnius, and the second city of Kaunas, are both quirky and artistic cities, easy to discover on foot, with many cafes and restaurants, excellent food and often live music.
Lithuania has such a variety of sights that it makes a varied and interesting tour. Beautiful old towns, stunning beaches, Soviet relics, medieval castles and more! A tour of Lithuania really is a fantastic holiday experience.
Sand dunes, wildlife, pine forests and wooden fishing villages make this a beautiful place to escape to.
Stunning open-air ethnographic museum, perfect to explore on a sunny day.

MORE LIKE A FRIEND THAN A GUIDE
The organisation of our trip was very professional and ran like clockwork. It was great to have everything organised and to not worry about driving or finding places of interest. We met some lovely tour guides especially Vicky in Palanga who was a fantastic host and felt more like a friend than a guide. We were pleasantly impressed by the standards of Eastern Europe and enjoyed the food and reasonable prices too. We would definitely recommend the baltics to our friends. In fact our 22 year old son said we could even leave him in Lithuania!
