A cosmopolitan city with an ancient Baroque heart, Vilnius is relatively compact and easy to get to know, with a variety of inexpensive attractions and a lively nightlife. Its numerous churches and palaces jostle for space in the Old Town’s winding cobbled alleys, where glitzy restaurants stand incongruously beside dilapidated old buildings. The large student population lends the place a tangible air of energy and optimism. Beguiling, and sometimes downright odd, Vilnius has an addictive quality.

Lithuania is bounded by Latvia, Belarus, Poland, and Russia (Kaliningrad) with a Baltic Sea coastline to the west. Lithuania is a country of plains, broken by low hills with numerous rivers and lakes and many marshes and wetlands, some of which have drained.
The upland areas are generally to be found in the west while the majority of the lakes are in the southern and northeastern parts of the republic. The Neman River, with its tributaries, forms part of the border with Russia and supplies the country with hydroelectric power. Vilnius is the country’s capital and largest city. Over two-thirds of the people live in cities, towns or urban areas.
Agriculture is very important to the economy and Lithuania’s forests, which cover about a quarter of the country, provide valuable timber resources. There is also a small but important fishing industry. Lithuania lacks exploitable mineral reserves, and the country is completely dependent upon imports of oil. Nuclear power accounts for about half the country’s energy needs with some additional power from hydroelectric schemes. Industries and manufacturing include shipbuilding, engineering, food processing, production of cement, machinery and electronic equipment.
