Some facts of Lithuania. Borders. Lithuania’s area - 65,2 sq.km. Population. Major towns. Fields and meadows. Forests and bushes. Largest river. The climate. Lithuania lies on the road between East Europe and West Europe, as the straightest road from Germany to Russia crosses Lithuania. Thus, the great German assault to the East, as well as that of the Russians to the West, used to be carried out through Lithuania. Somebody has remarked to this point : “If Switzerland is characterized by high mountains, Italy- by its works of art, Finland - by its lakes, then Lithuania should be characterized as a land, very unsafe to live in for a small nation”. In the period of 1940 - 1953 Lithuania was occupied three times. Each occupation was accompanied by the Bolshevist and Hitlerite genocide and resulted in armed resistence, which lasted for a decade the end of World War II. Lithuania lost 30% of its population during that period. This loss was one of the heaviest in Europe. Our nation is very old our language is archaic. Lithuanians formed a nation simultaneously with the forming of the Lithuanian state in the 13th century. The Lithuanian-speaking territory embraced 110.000 sq. km. However, this area continued to grow narrower due to the process of Slavonization, especially in the 19th century. The calamities of the 20th century dipersed the Lithuanians all around the world. At present 80% of all Lithuanians live in the Republic of Lithuania, 20% - in other countries. Lithuania was the last country in Europe to adopt Christianity (1387). The main confession today is Catholicism. Lithuania is an agricultural country. Lithuania has a comparatively well-developed agriculture and food-processing industry, production of radioelectronic and electrotechnical goods and a light industry. There are 500 km of hard surface roads in every one thousand square kilometers in Lithuania.
