Comprehensive guide exploring the history and culture of the destination.
Guide to Lithuania from R. Paknio leidykla publications, aimed at those interested in discovering the history, culture and nature of the country they are visiting; it is written by Lithuanian art historian Giedre Jankeviciute. As well as the usual information on recommended restaurants, accommodation, and useful traveller tips, it is in the cultural areas this guide excels.

The book's eleven chapters encompass Lithuania's ten regions, and the city of Vilnius and is illustrated with full-colour photographs, as well as basic town plans. A concise history of Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipeda, and important facts from the past of other cities and villages provides historical depth to their present-day form.

Sections on the national parks of Aukštaitija, Dzukija, Žemaitija, the Curonian Spit, and the Trakai historical park reveal the diversity of their nature, history, and ethnography. Here there are descriptions of the most interesting architectural monuments (religious sanctuaries, public buildings, estates, mills and bridges), works of art (sacral paintings, memorials, crosses and chapels), nature (parks, lakes, rivers, rocks, hills and trees), and museums, historical sites and more.

The guide contains over 1,000 colour illustrations, maps of each region and of the three major cities (Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipeda), and indexes of described places and celebrated personalities.
