Its LIT in LIThuania!

Today, February 16, 2018, is Lithuania’s 100th year of Independence! In 1918, Lithuania declared its independence from German occupation, and declared Vilnius as Lietuva’s capital. The entire country has been celebrating with festivities, lights, and food of course. Klaipeda had the most beautiful light display throughout Old Town, for thousands of Lithuanians to enjoy. What a time to be in Lithuania, and get to celebrate with the locals!
