Zip Facts about Lithuania:

  • Ethnic Lithuanians constitute over 80% of the mostly homogeneous population
  • The Lithuanian cuisine is representative of seasonal, readily available, and generally inexpensive ingredients. Popular Lithuanian dishes include cepelinai (oval shaped potato dumplings filled with meat), which derived its name from the shape of the zeppelin, and saltibarsciai (cold beet soup)
  • The national bird of Lithuania is the stork and is considered the land of the storks, holding on to the European myth for their young children that storks deliver babies
  • Lithuanians were the first to make vodka from corn
  • As in certain other countries, typical marriages require both a legal and a religious ceremony
