LITHUANIA Lithuania is a green and flat land in the north of Europe, ashore the Baltic Sea. It is one of three Baltic countries, and shares borders with Latvia, Belorus, Poland and Russia (Kaliningrad). The country is full of preserved natural landscapes, woods, lakes and rivers, and has a unique sea side, with Curonian spit, a sandy peninsula, isolating the Curonian sea from the Baltic sea. Lithuania, an active member of the European Union and North Atlantic Treaty Organization, is the only Baltic country with nearly eight hundred years of statehood tradition, while its name was first mentioned more than one thousand years ago, in 1009. Wedged at the divi- ding line of Western and Eastern civilizations, in 1918 the country declared its Independence and in 1990 restored it by separating from the Soviet Union.
