Lithuania

Overview

Last time we checked, no other country on Earth has built a statue in Frank Zappa’s honor. Stuffy, it ain’t. Instead, Lithuania is a laid back place; the kind of country with calm lakes, quietly stunning medieval castles, and open air museums to explore at your own pace.
 
Tour a former KGB prison with bags of shredded documents still piled into dingy offices. Warm up with krupnikas, a Lithuaninan honey liqueur. Hit up one of the country’s many film festivals, or catch a basketball game; it’s the national sport, after all.  
 
We can’t really explain the Frank Zappa fanbase, but we can tell you where to stretch your dollar and how to ask a lovely Lithuanian to dance.
