You will never be short of things to do or see and as soon as your plane touches down you’ll believe you’re in a real-life paradise.

During the winter it looks not unlike a snow covered fairy tale village. Then, on the other hand, you have fascinating contemporary galleries filled with modern art and street art hidden around the city. They have many annual festivals that bring the city to life, like Uzgavenes, the Kaziukas fair as well as may film and art festivals celebrating tradition and culture as well as modernity and youth.

Paris

Whatever it is that you’re looking for, there’s a very good chance that you’ll find it in Paris; fantastic food, historic landmarks, fascinating museums and so much more. There is an atmosphere in Paris that keeps people coming back. Whether it’s the lights lining the streets that glimmer at night or the smell of coffee and pastries wafting down side streets, there is something that lures people back and you could never visit Paris just once and see everything it has to offer.
