LITHUANIA is truly one of the fascinating destinations in the world today. With a remarkable recorded history dating back nearly 1,000 years, Lithuania was one of the largest and most powerful countries in Europe from the 14th through the 16th century. It rescued Europe from Mongol Invasion, and successfully resisted and diluted the power of the Teuonic Knights for 200 years until defeating them decisively (with the assistance of other nations) at the battle of Zalgris in 1410.

More recently, Lithuania was the first to stand firm against the Soviet Union, perpetuating a domino effect leading to the Union's breakup. The eminent American Statesman Zbigniew Brzezinski in November of 1998 stated: "The courage of Lithuania in 1990 and 1991 caused the disintegration of the Soviet Union. "

This tour throughout Lithuania including Moletai, Aukstaitija Nationl Park, Rokiskis, Birzai, The Hill of Crosses near Sauliai, Nida, Klaipeda, Kaunas, Druskininkai, Kernave, Rumsiskes, Trakai, and many other outstanding locations, reveals the very distictive character of the Lithuanian People, with intriguing Cultural, Ethnographic, Artistic, and Historical phenomena at every juncture.

Duration: 95 Min

VILNIUS was founded by Lithuania's King Gediminas at the confluence of the Neris and Vilnia Rivers in 1323. It rapidly became the flourishing capital of one of the largest and most powerful nations in Europe. As such, it became known as a remarkably tolerant, multi-ethnic city nuturing deep cultural, intellectual, and spiritual values.

Today, one can walk the streets of old Vilinius (one of the largest old towns in all of Europe) unencumbered by the usual drawbacks associated with excessive commercialization, and experience the rich legacy of this 675 year old city and World Heritage Centre.

Lithuania's great appreciation of the importance of history has nurtured preservation and reconstruction of the highest order. One can take several days to walk the carefully planned old town and only begin to absorb the rich wealth of detail there to behold.

This video will take us on an extensive walking tour through old Vilnius, contributing pertinent historical and supplemental information along the way. Also included are special segments on the churches of Vilnius, and the arts and cultural activities of Vilinus.

Duration: 62 Min
