Dear Traveler, once Gillian Hovell wrote: "Discover how to visit the past and bring yesterday's stories into our lifes today". This is what we want to inspire you to do with our Lithuanian Medieval Tour. Lithuania has retained unfading medieval breath which is still wandering in the narrow streets, castles and archaelogical sites. Every place that we have chosen for this tour is an exclusive example of medieval times and will bring you back in time.
Come and see the remains of medieval world in Lithuania!
