Geography & Climate
We invite you to visit Lithuania in different seasons of the year to see how different our country looks year-round: we know what a sunny spring, hot summer, long and warm autumn and a nippy winter are like. We also know what hot sun, soaking rain, strong wind and winter blizzard is like. If you like contrasts, visit us in January and July – the coldest and hottest months of the year.
Lithuania is a small Middle European state at the shore of the Baltic Sea, in size similar to Ireland. It is commonly called the land of plains, lakes and rivers. We don't have high mountains - the highest hill is only 293,8 meters above the sea level. But you can count up to 22 000 rivers and streams and almost 3000 lakes here!
Lithuania’s climate is characterized by seasonal weather changes, so when you come to our country in different seasons you can see how different it looks - we know what a really sunny spring, hot summer, long and warm autumn and a nippy winter are like. In recent decades the climate of Lithuania has become warmer.
