Lithuania - moving around the country
Please note that as in all European countries, the popularity of bicycles in Lithuania is increasing with time. Now this two-wheeled transport can be rented in any city. In this case, the main advantage of renting is the fact that you can return the bicycle at any rental point, even if it is situated in another city. In large cities, there is an excellent bicycle interchange; it is also convenient to travel between cities by such transport. If you are already in an area or city where there are no special bicycle paths, then do not worry, since bicyclists are very much respected and given a lot of leeway on ordinary roads. Accordingly, the government and citizens themselves are trying to emphasize the importance of using noiseless and environmentally safe modes of transportation. If you are a sophisticated traveler, then you can fully use the services of hitchhiking. This type of transportation is common here. Sometimes this is due not only to the lack of money, but also to the lack of direct access to a particular area or region.
Nature and parks of Lithuania
Most of Lithuanian’s territory is covered by plains. The highest point of the country has a height of no more than 300 meters. One of the country's amazing natural attractions is the Curonian Spit. That’s the elongated narrow saber-shaped land that separates the Curonian Lagoon from the Baltic Sea. The Curonian Spit stretches almost 100 km. There is no analog to this phenomenon anywhere in the world. The body of the spit consists of sand dunes. The largest of them exceeds 60 meters; this is one of the highest dunes in the world. The Curonian Spit and its adjoining territories make together a national park. This place is protected by the state. To get acquainted with this incredible creation of nature, you can go on a trip along one of the many hiking trails for tourists. More than 30 species of endangered birds and more than 800 different plant species can be found there.
