Famous for its forested landscapes, flatlands, numerous lakes and sandy beaches where amber can be found, Lithuania is a picturesque Baltic state on the Baltic sea in Northern Europe. A developed European nation with an advanced economy, the region has a rich history of human habitation dating back to the stone age. The language of Lithuanian, spoken by approximately 3 million people in Lithuania, is the oldest Indo-European language still in use today. Lithuanian has a reputation of being a hard language to learn as it has retained elements from its older languages of origin, Latin, Ancient Greek and Sanskrit.
