Vilnius & Coronian Spit, Lithuania
Part east and part south, Vilnius, European Cultural Capital 2009, sits firmly on the border between east European rough potato dishes and south European delicate red wine. Between the historic, and mighty, Lithuanian empire and the European Union. The Curonian Spit is a geological wonder in the Baltic Sea and a cultural haven well known for its great jazz festival, tennis tournaments and the memory from the horrors of both the nazi SS and the Soviet KGB.
