2018 marks an important milestone in Lithuania’s history as the country celebrates the 100th anniversary of the restoration of the State.

In celebration of this the Lithuania State Department of Tourism has released a new marketing video to showcase the beauty and diversity of the country.

The tourist board’s new one-minute video showcases the emotional responses tourists have when visiting Lithuania. Indre Trakimaite-SeSkuviene, acting director of the department of tourism, said: “According to a survey conducted by Google, when travellers are dreaming about a trip, as many as 66% of them look through videos during the first stage of preparation for travelling. Therefore, a new video about Lithuania was a necessity in this epoch of the visual.

“We wanted to create a video not only to represent tourism possibilities in Lithuania, but also to promise tourists an exceptional acquaintance with a country, which is not similar to any other European country, to inspire positive emotions and a desire to visit as well as to conform to the country’s tourism concept – ‘Lithuania. Real is Beautiful’. That is why we decided to portray the most impressive views of Lithuania through the tourists’ emotions, senses and experiences.”
