Italians impressed by Vilnius’ Baroque majesty


Deluge of articles in Italian press rave about Lithuania


Italian tourists appear to be very interested in Vilnius and Lithuania this year, if the recent publication of around 150 articles in Italian newspapers and magazines are anything to go by. Few of the articles mention the impact of the economic crisis on Lithuania, the severe lack of funding for European Capital of Culture events or the bankruptcy of the national flag carrier flyLAL. Instead, they describe the country’s high Internet usage, the stunning Baroque architecture and the decent beer. Last year, Lithuania welcomed a record number of Italian tourists, almost 30,000 of them. Considering the continuing flow of articles in the press, that number could even increase this year.
