10 vacation recommendations in Lithuania by

Experiences, impressions, family memories, discoveries. The “profit” of travel through Lithuania is immeasurable. Try at least one of the 10 recommended directions. Perhaps you will love  a place where you can drink morning coffee and watch hundreds of cranes fly by, or a mansion without bats or a tent like in Bali?

No.1 To the village. Where is no dust of the city

It is necessary to include a rural tourism homestead in the plan for urban escape. After all, the Lithuanian village is full of culture, attractions and is very hospitable. For example, those who wish to not only relax in nature, but also learn to smoke cottage cheese are invited by the rural tourism farmstead “Crane’s Song (Gervių giesmė)”.  It is located next to the Novaraisis Reserve, where the cranes live, so you can watch their flight over the homestead while drinking morning coffee.

A couple of weeks ago, in Klaipėda district, a flag of rural tourism was hoisted and the 20th rural tourism season was officially opened

 “I would like to congratulate providers of rural tourism services on their anniversary – the opening of the 20th rural tourism season, and first of all thank them for the particularly dynamic and creative years of rural tourism” said Indrė Trakimaitė-Šeškuvienė, acting Head of the Tourism Department, who took part in the opening ceremony of the rural tourism season.

” Please note that last year we included, for the first time, the data from rural tourism homesteads into the official statistics of institutions providing accommodation in Lithuania” added Indrė Trakimaitė-Šeškuvienė ”According to the Lithuanian Association of Rural Tourism, on average, 20 per cent of local tourists who stayed overnight in an institution providing accommodation did so in a rural tourism homestead.

By the way, foreigners also say that a possibility to stay at country homesteads in Lithuania is one of the country’s largest assets and exceptional features, which enables a better knowledge of nature, customs and people” .

Currently, Lithuania has more than 600 rural tourism homesteads offering almost 15 thousand places of accommodation. Rural tourism homesteads attract tourists by demonstrating culinary heritage and customs or organizing active leisure activities. In Lithuania, you can find various thematic homesteads – for instance, that of rabbits, that of sea buck thorns, that of the rites of Balts or a homestead where it is possible to listen to the songs of cranes, etc.

The Tourism Department together with the Lithuanian Association of Rural Tourism prepared a TOP10 list of exceptional rural homesteads inviting tourists to stay and taste:

Homestead where you can bake “heart” pancakes in an outside stove – Gervių giesmė (The Song of Cranes) (Kazlų Rūda municipality). The homestead is surrounded by wild nature, and the stream Nova flows through its courtyard. At a distance of 3 km, the ornithological reserve Novaraistis is situated, and hundreds of cranes live in its marshes. Every morning, the cranes fly above the homestead, while in the evening they return home squealing.
