Lithuania by bicycleA general presentation /
Eine allgemeine Vorstellung

n Lithuania you may find two worlds.

Or how do we stress it: We have anything but mountains.

The two worlds is the hilly East with it’s lakes and forests on the one side and the seacoast with it’s beaches on the other side.

Therefore most of the interesting nature regions you find in the East, North and South of the Capital Vilnius:

  • the National Park Aukshtaija [LT3]
  • the National Park Dzukija [LT1]
  • Or at the Sea coast [LT5]:

the impressive sand dunes of the National Park “Curonian spit” and
the National Park Zemaitija
One route – along the Nieman river – connects of Lithuania East with the West (the coast) [LT2]

The rest of the country is of minor interest (I shouldn’t say so, but many parts are quite flat, agricultural and lack sights and tourist infrastructure).

So for BaltiCCycle routes, the country was divided the two regions in the East – North of Vilnius (LT3) and South of Vilnius (LT1), the West of Lithuania (LT5) and the connection route (LT2). One project on cycle route development took as well place in the South West [LT4], but for international tourism this region is still of less interest.
