About the Book
Once the largest country in Europe, Lithuania has experienced a colourful and often traumatic history; for this reason, it offers the inquisitive visitor an absorbing glimpse into a corner of world history that is so often unseen. The streets of its capital resound with the hum of commercial development, while its countryside echoes with the footfalls of antiquity.
