Lithuania
Guide
Giedrė Jankevičiūtė
A new guide designed for those travellers interested in discovering the history, culture and nature of the country they are visiting. This book differs from other introductions to Lithuania in its broad historical and cultural context and careful selection of important sites and objects. A diverse and copious amount of information is presented in an easily readable style. Not surprisingly, it is written by an art historian, a broad-minded academic and author of many publications in her field, who also happens to be a passionate and observant traveller. The text is well illustrated with numerous beautiful images of buildings, monuments, and landscapes. The guide can even be utilised as a valuable correspondence introduction to the interesting sights of Lithuania. The book's 11 chapters encompass Lithuania's 10 regions, and the city of Vilnius. A concise history of Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipėda, and important facts from the past of other cities and villages provides historical depth to their present-day form. Sections on the national parks of Aukštaitija, Dzūkija, Žemaitija, the Curonian Spit, and the Trakai historical park reveal the diversity of their nature, history, and ethnography. Here you will find descriptions of the most interesting architectural monuments (religious sanctuaries, public buildings, estates, mills and bridges), works of art (sacral paintings, memorials, crosses and chapels), the wonders of nature (parks, lakes, rivers, rocks, hills and trees), museums, historical sites, etc.
The guide contains over 1,000 colour illustrations, maps of each region and of the three major cities (Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipėda), and indexes of described places and personalities.
