Vilnius, steeped in Catholicism, is proud of its churches, which are considered by many to be the most beautiful in the world (especially by Napoleon). Several museums and monuments retrace the struggles against Soviet occupation and for sovereignty. Finally, Kaliningrad, home of the philosopher Kant, offers visitors its 750 years of history, which can be read in many museums and churches.
The coasts of the Baltic Sea :
The charm of Klaip?da, the Baltic port which does not freeze in winter, the traditional craftsmanship and gastronomy, the wild beauty of the dunes of the Curonian Lagoon, the local know-how in thalassotherapy: the superb thermal and seaside resorts... All these reasons encourage visitors to explore the fine sandy beaches of the Baltic Sea, while scanning the wet sand in the hope of seeing amber. It should be noted that in summer the water temperature can exceed 20°C and that you can therefore swim in it!
