Located rather strategically in the Northern Europe, the lovely nation of Lithuania boasts of a lively and vibrant people -- majority of who happen to be Baltic people. The country has a population of 3.2 million with family being the center of the nation’s social structure. Roman Catholics are the most vital component of the Lithuanian population with Russian Orthodox, Protestant, Evangelical Christian Baptist, Jewish and Muslims being some of the other important components.
A member of the NATO and the EU, Lithuania has a population which chiefly consists of those who are neither Slavic nor Germanic, although the nation’s association with Poland and its subsequent colonization at the hands of the Germans and Russians impacted the overall culture and religious beliefs of its populace.
The Roman Catholic Church plays a dominant role in guiding people’s beliefs and way of life. Such is the influence of the church on the lives of the common man of the country that even the many festivals of the nation turn out to be more of religious observances for its people.
The biggest of the three Baltic States, Lithuania, has a rather progressive outlook when it comes to education even while it boasts of highly literate society that lays much stress upon education, which is offered free to its children and is compulsory until they turn 16. That this proves to a crucial factor in attracting immigrants to the nation’s shores is no secret.
Despite many disturbing and not too encouraging factors -- including continued geographical border changes over the years, Soviet, German and Polish deportations, carnage of its Jewish populace -- the people of the nation has successfully maintained a pretty steady percentage of the native Lithuanians. It was 79.3% during 1959 while during 2011 it was 83.9%. The citizenship law and constitution of the country ensure that people of the nation enjoy universal human and civil rights.
The Lithuanian language is rather interesting for linguistic study purposes. While Lithuanian happens to be the chief language of this ex-Soviet nation, Latvian is the second key language of it. Over 80% of the people of the country speak Lithuanian language.
Much like other nations, it is customary in Lithuania also that its people address others with their honorific titles/surnames. While visiting someone, it is considered courteous to carry along wine/flowers/sweets and offer the same to the hostess of the house.
