Winter Vacation

(5) marks: 2

The fact that there are no mountains in Lithuania winter holidays here seem to nave low importance. The only exception can be made for the season of Christmas holidays. In this very season tourists basically from neighboring Russia, Belarus and Poland come here to celebrate the New Year in Vilnius or Kaunas and to have fun in numerous cafes of the Old City. Moreover as a rule the tourists are offered standard excursions round the main sights of these cities in addition to shopping in the biggest supermarkets.

However Lithuania is able to offer a tourist more ways of having rest in winter rather than usual dance round the New Year tree or a shopping fever. It’s is known that more and more tourists prefer a week holiday somewhere in a quiet place near the forest to a noisy and very often tiresome tour.

Lithuania offers several variants of such vacation. Its most popular health resort of Druskininkai is attractive not only in summer but also in frosty January. The season here is not restricted to summer months, it continues all the year round. Skiing along the outskirts of the resort is also as attractive as cycling.
Another famous resort of Birshtonas has done more to attract tourist’s attention and except for some skiing tracks it has organized a real downhill track. It begins at the top of a hill which is 40 meters high and its general length is 160 meters. It’s clear that Birshtonas is not the Alps. But this track is able to diversify a quiet rhythm of this spa-resort.

A good winter tour round Lithuanian cities can become a bright event. A tourist can make it either alone or using the service of any tour agency. In any case such excursions as the one along the town Anikschai (an old railway, the Museum of horses, the downhill track on the hill of Kaletos) or another one round an old Lithuanian capital Kyarnava which is considered to be one of the most beautiful cities in Lithuania are really good and can suit anybody’s taste.
