Geography, Weather, & Wildlife of Lithuania
Lithuania is a "Baltic State," which is located
in northern Europe on the Baltic Sea. Lithuania borders Russia
(the Kaliningrad section to the southwest), Poland (south),
Belarus (east), and Latvia (north).
Geographically, Lithuania is a very flat country that
stands just above sea level. A number of small rivers and tributaries make the country
very livable as does the Baltic Sea. Due to this near geographic uniformity every
part of the country is accessible and people live throughout the country.
Lithuania's seasons are fairly distinct, although
springs and falls (autumns) can be short. Winters (December-February) tend to be
cold with very short days as Vilnius averages only about 25˚ F (-4˚ C) during these
