Lithuania is situated on the eastern coast of the Baltic Sea and covers 65,300 square kilometers. The length of coastline is 99 kilometers. It is the southernmost of the three Baltic countries. Lithuania has a long history behind itself as a proud kingdom that once stretched to the Black Sea, some 2,000 kilometers further to the south. Since then, the country has shrunk a lot. But what is left is certainly worth exploring on vacations in Lithuania. A good starting point in which to find Lithuania vacation rentals is Vilnius, the Jerusalem of Europe, as it was called at the turn of the century. Other places of interest include the cities of Kaunas and Klaipeda. The region has developed a huge lodging industry offering accommodations such as hotels, Lithuania vacation rentals, and Lithuania vacation homes.
