Strategically located across the northeastern part of the European continent, Lithuania has roughly a geographical area of 65,200 square kilometers. Some geographers suggest that Vilnius--the capital of the Lithuania—is located right at the geographical middle of the European continent. Vilnius is also located on the banks of the Neris and Vilnia Rivers.
The biggest and also the most populated state amongst the three Baltic States, Lithuania boasts of a geographical area which is more than the individual areas of the countries of Belgium and Denmark. The southernmost of the three Baltic States, Lithuania shares its geographical borders with the countries of Belarus (Southeast), Latvia (North), Poland (southwest), and Kaliningrad.
Located between the 54th and 56th latitudes, and the 20th and 27th longitudes, the country is, by and large, glacially flat, though one may come across some small hilly areas across the western and eastern highlands of the nation. It is said that the glaciers of the past ice age have, sort of, rounded the lands of the country.
This ex-Soviet nation is situated at the border of the North European Plain. It has an impressive forest cover of almost 33% and boasts of several picturesque lakes and marshlands. The Baltic country has slightly hot summers and wet, gentle winters even while its climate varies between continental and maritime.
The country has close to 61.5 miles of sandy coastline. This is another matter that just 24 miles are caressed by the open Baltic Sea. That this is the smallest among the three Baltic Sea nations is no secret. Klaipeda is the chief major warm-water port of Lithuania.
The Lithuanian rivers are slow and not equally distributed across the landscapes of the nation. The primary river of the nation, Nemunas River--together with some of its tributaries--is suitably employed for internal shipping purposes. Neris and Venta are the other key rivers of the nation. The country has almost 758 rivers and 2800 lakes.
