Lithuania is a country in Northern Europe, the largest of the three Baltic states. It is situated along the southeastern shore of the Baltic Sea, to the east of Sweden and Denmark. It borders Latvia to the north, Belarus to the east and south, Poland to the south, and a Russian exclave (Kaliningrad Oblast) to the southwest. Lithuania has an estimated population of 3.2 million as of 2011, and its capital and largest city is Vilnius. The Lithuanians are a Baltic people, and the official language, Lithuanian, is one of only two living languages (together with Latvian) in the Baltic branch of the Indo-European language family. Since it is situated by the Baltic Sea it has excellent resorts on the coastline. Specifically you should visit Palanga, where decent housing costs you about 30 dollars a night and it comes with a pool, a warm sea and beautiful beach. If you're from Eastern Europe it is probably your best option for a family vacation. The night life is great too, if you're into that.
