True Lithuania

Lithuania ethnic heritage itineraries

Many ethnicities passed by Lithuania over the centuries and many of them have left heritage here.

*Polish Lithuania. The remains of the centuries when Poles and Lithuanians were nearly a single nation.

*Russian Lithuania. Old Believer villages and the remains of two long occupations (Imperial and Soviet).

*Jewish Lithuania. Synagogues and homes of this craftsmen community.

*German Lithuania. What the German knights, merchants and townsfolk have left.

*Turkic Lithuania. It may be quite surprising, but two Turkic minorities (Tatars and Karaims) live in Lithuania since 15th century AD.

*American Lithuania. Heritage of 150 years of Lithuanian-American relations.

*The most iconic minorities. Both ethnic and religious.
