Lithuania - moving around the country
The Lithuanian railway has a fairly extensive network. Thus, you can get to any region of this small country by train. All trains are in excellent condition, the upholstery of the seats is soft and the tambour clean. As a rule, there are two clean toilets. This you will find even in the wagon of the lowest class of train. You can buy a train ticket at the counter or from the conductor. If however the passenger is picked up at a railway station where there is no ticket office, then buying a ticket from the conductor will cost about a quarter more. Suburban electric trains run within a city or region. The level of comfort in the wagons of suburban electric trains is usually lower than that in long-distance trains. Nonetheless, travelers will not spend much time on the way. Air transportation in Lithuania is also well developed. Nevertheless, in view of the fact that the territory of this State is rather small, airlines of international airports do not conduct domestic flights. If necessary, you can use the services of charter flights which can land on one of three dozen airfields.
Nature and parks of Lithuania
The territory of the Curonian Spit National Park has a rich fauna. In the park, you can find elk, wild boar, roe deer, raccoon, beaver, fox, and marten. The Curonian Spit is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List, which makes it even more attractive for tourists and locals. The territory of the park is under very strict control. It’s forbidden to litter or do anything that can harm nature. Another important feature of the geography of Lithuania is a large number of lakes, about 2800. Despite the impressive figure, lakes are rather small and occupy slightly more than 1% of the country's territory. The largest lake, Druksiai, is located on the border with Belarus. Its maximum depth is about 30 meters. The shores of the lake are mostly sandy, so you can sunbathe there. Hostels and recreation centers are open on the shore.
