Lithuania is no gourmet destination

Twice the size of Belgium and generally half as expensive, Lithuania possesses more history than the reading room at the British Library, plus 60 miles of white sandy beaches and a wealth of cultural distractions.

And this year it is one of Europe’s cultural capitals, so there’ll be all sorts of bizarre and friendly cultural outings to attend. But for those still young enough to party hardy all night, head north to Palanga Lithuania's answer to Margate complete with hedonistic non-stop weekend parties, all-night bars on the beach and a thoroughly kiss-me-quick ambience.

A bit over the hill for the silly eyes? Steer clear of the pricey capital Vilnius then and check out the likes of premier spa town, Druskininkai, or Siauliai, with 14 quirky museums and some of the friendliest bars in the country.

National hero, Ryanair is the only way to get there direct, and with 18 flights a week to Kaunas from Birmingham, Liverpool, Luton and Stansted, there must be something going on.
