HOST CITY - VILNIUS, LITHUANIA
Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, is one of the most frequently visited cities of Eastern Europe. It draws attention, not only because of its unique architectural character, but also by its cultural events and attractions.
During the first ten years of independence the city has become a tourist attraction center. It is, therefore, not surprising that during these ten years the number of tourists has consistently increased and at the same time tourist infrastructure and services have been developed.
Vilnius, as the capital of Lithuania, is the home of the President, the Seimas, the Government and the Supreme Court. Diplomatic missions, educational, cultural, financial, research, and healthcare institutions are based here.
Lithuania is a green and flat land in the north of Europe, ashore the Baltic Sea. It is one of three Baltic countries, and shares borders with Latvia, Byelorussia, Poland and Russia (Kaliningrad). The country is full of preserved natural landscapes, woods, lakes and rivers, and has an unique sea side, with Curonian split, a sandy peninsula, isolating the Curonian sea from the Baltic sea.
Though Lithuania was mentioned already in 1009, now it is a young republic, trying to recover from a grinding occupation of Soviet Union. The independence was retrieved only in 1990, but the history of Lithuanian statehood started already in XIII century, when Mindaugas, the first and only kind of our country, gained the crown. The history of Lithuania is erratic, full of mighty victories and severe events. Today’s Lithuania is a small country, but in historical maps you can find it the biggest country in the Europe, or not existing at all. Today the country, still under impact of 50 years soviet occupation, tries to blend into the economic and cultural space of Europe Union.
As one of the countries in Europe, baptized at the latest, Lithuania preserved much of pagan traditions, and folk traditions are still alive in villages. The cultural life prospers in all the bigger cities.

An aside: My oldest son attended Mykolas Romeris University for his masters degree in the Social Sciences as part of an exchange program between Erasmus University College and Mykolas Romeris University. When I attended the IACLPM 2015 we were able to spend some quality time together. I even took him to hear the keynote speaker, Toma Birmontiene. Over dinner one evening, we were discussing whether he wanted to remain in academia and pursue a doctorate's degree or look for a job upon graduation with his masters degree. Our discussion was wide ranging and I don't even remember how we ended up discussing what one of his cousins, Daan was doing. Daan was in the US working for a large e commerce site that sold janitorial, restaurant, and office supplies, along with technology products and office furniture. My son commented that his mother, who is always looking for the best deals would probably email Daan to find out what he thought was the best price garbage bags available. I doubt that she would be able to order them since I believed the company only shipped in the US. However....and then I revealed that I had been offered a job which would require us to move to the US. I was seriously considering accepting the offer. So when we moved to the US, his mother could order all her cleaning , paper products and garbage bags from the company Daan worked for. Update: We did move to New York City and my wife actually does order from CleanItSupplies when Daan works. LOL.
