Fast facts

Learn about the country on Wikipedia. Here is an excerpt:

Lithuania is a country in the Baltic region of Europe. It is one of three Baltic states and lies on the eastern shore of the Baltic Sea. Lithuania shares land borders with Latvia to the north, Belarus to the east and south, Poland to the south, and Kaliningrad Oblast of Russia to the southwest. It has maritime border with Sweden to the west on the Baltic Sea. Lithuania covers an area of 65,300 km2, with a population of 2.8 million. Its capital and largest city is Vilnius; other major cities are Kaunas and Klaipeda. Lithuanians belong to the ethno-linguistic group of the Balts and speak Lithuanian, one of only a few living Baltic languages.

Lithuania is a developed country, with a high income advanced economy; ranking very high in the Human Development Index. It ranks favourably in terms of civil liberties, press freedom, internet freedom, democratic governance, and also peacefulness.

I might add that Lithuania is a multi-ethnic country with Lithuanians making up a large majority (85%). Russians account for about 5% which is much less than in Lithuania’s Baltic neighbour countries, Estonia and Latvia. There they make up almost 25% of the population due to resolute Soviet immigration politics after WW2.
