Top Ten Things Lithuania is Known For

I made this type of list about Sweden, one of my home countries, so now I'll make one about my other home country, Lithuania, without further ado, let's start!

The Top Ten

1 Basketball Basketball Basketball is a sport played by two teams of five players on a rectangular court. The objective is to shoot a ball through a hoop 18 inches in diameter and 10 feet high mounted to a backboard at each end.

Yeah, of course. The national sport of Lithuania is basketball. A sport I don't really am into, but I respect it, especially since it's lithuania's national sport (call me biased if you want to) - darthvadern

Which is true. But if you do, talk about how people might know about it. This list trend ain't so bad actually. - iliekpiez

They're very good at basketball - Redrocky416

NBA Players come from there, and perform great. Jonas Valenchiunas is a great example.

2 History

If there is one thing Lithuania is the most known for then it's history! Lithuania's history is quite famous and big, some people do even say it's more known than Latvia because of the history! I certainly find it so interesting too even though I barely know much about it, but many people know Lithuania because of history - darthvadern

Imagine not knowing what Lithuania is - TwilightKitsune

3 High Suicide Rate High Suicide Rate

Sorry to hear that. - Metal_Treasure

Unfortuanely, Lithuania has one of the highest suicide ratings in the whole world and some times even ranks as the number #1 coutnry with the highest, the only country that usually tops Lithuania is Greenland which isn't even a sovereign state, but rather part of Denmark - darthvadern

4 Vilnius Vilnius

Vilnius is the capital of Lithuania and the only capital of the baltic states that lies in the country and not at the coast, in fact it's very close to Belarus so I wouldn't be suprised if many of the tourists there are lithuanians from Vilnius. - darthvadern

5 Lithuanian Language Lithuanian Language

Lithuanian is one of the most conservative and oldest languages in Europe! Not only that, but also one of the only two surviving baltic languages in the world along with Latvian. As I half-lithuanian myself who can't even speak it I am planning on learning it, and I find it wonderful, it sounds so exotic and nostalgic for me - darthvadern

6 Dieveniškės Regional Park

This area in Lithuania is almost completely surrounded by Belarus and it looks kinda funny as at the north-west where the area connects with the rest of Lithuania, there is this small corridor in which there it is just a few miles surrounded by Belarus on two sides - darthvadern

7 Amber

Along the beautiful beaches of Lithuania you can actaly find amber although it's quite rare, you must be lucky to find it, not even I have found it when I was there. Speaking of beaches, they are gorgeous! - darthvadern

8 Sculptures In Forests

Lithuania is a country with mainly plains, but forests are found too! In Lithuania in unlike almost all other european countries I think, the forests in lithuania have sculptures of gods and creatures of lithuanian folklore. I have been to two of those forests and it's seriously a must go to if you visit this wonderful country - darthvadern

9 Storks Storks

Aww cute birds I love them!

Storks are the national animals of Lithuania, and it is said that if a stork has a nest near your house it means good luck - darthvadern

I wonder how Lithuanians reacted when that movie about storks (yknow the one that had a girl called Tulip) went to the screens - TwilightKitsune

10 Folklore

Oh yeah, Baltic mythology is amazing - TwilightKitsune

Lithuanian folklore is so interesting in my opinion and Lithuania is quite known for it, it was also one of the last countries in Europe to convert to christianity (catholic christianity to be more exact). Anyway, the folklore is interesting! There's Perkūnas, the god of thunder, Patulas, the god of the underworld and dead, Patrimpas, the god of seas, and many more. Keep in mind I could be wrong so correct me if I'm wrong - darthvadern
