3.6 million people used accommodation services for at least one night while traveling in Lithuania and 1.7 million of them were foreign tourists. That’s an 11.3% growth compared to 2017! The numbers are two times bigger than predicted by the UNWTO.
Last year, the biggest group of foreign guests came to Lithuania from Germany. The growth of guests from the UK has also been significant. Tourists from France, Italy and the Scandinavian countries also visited Lithuania last year.
Lithuania has been steadily investing in marketing itself in specific countries. Last year, Lithuania greeted 11.6% more guests from the US, 22.3% more guests from Japan, 20.6% more guests from China and 27.3% more guests from Israel.
Dogs bring an immense feeling of happiness and joy. A visitor in Lithuania can go for an enjoyable ride through the forest paths around Kernavė in a sled pulled by friendly Alaskan huskies.
