Travel Tips for Marijampole
Learn few words Lithuanians!
The locals in Mariampole and Kazlu Ruda destricts are a little bit fobic against foreigners. If you visit a restauranrt as a tourist they will let you wait and that means half an hour or more . The locals who came after you will end their meal when you get yours. I noticed this in several places.
The solution is simple.
So learn a few Lithuanian say Labas.... and order your food in Lithuanian then are chances better to get your food in time.
Also some agressive guest against forigners driving a car from other countries.
This districts are not so friendly to the tourist. In the cities like Kaunas and Vilnius there is no problem- they are friendly to tourists, but in Mariampole that is not a rule.
Marijampole a town on the road
"Take a walk trough the town"
It is a town or a big village?
On a road to the Baltic this is a town, spreaded in wide area. A trade point for cars in the Baltic area.
Nothing special for a short time stay.
Take a walk to the centre and arround. I enjoyed a walk on the street with some old houses made of breaks or wood. A lot of Socialism architecture also.
The point to meet are shopping centres Maxima and Rimi, the rest of the town is more quiet.

"Marijampole - a small town in Lithuania"
The Marijampole Region, situated in the South -West of the country, borders on the Kaliningrad Region (Russia) in the west and on Poland in the southwest.
Marijampole is situated near the Sesupe River and in 1955-1989 was named "Kapsukas" after the founder of the Lithuanian Communist Party. More than 95% of Marijampole's 52 thousand residents are Lithuanian, making it the most ethnically Lithuanian city in the country. The history of the town should probably be calculated from 1792, when the town was granted town rights. The town grew considerably in the 19th century, stimulated by the St.Petersburg-Warsaw highway which was built through the area in 1829. Marijampole subsequently became a district center, and was particularly prosperous after the Kazlu Ruda-Sestokai railway was laid through the town.
The Lithuanian literary classic Zemaite (1845-1921) is buried in Marijampole, where she lived in 1921 after returning from America.
It's been quite a silent & a fuddy-duddy town for the past 10 years but fortunately the situation has changed. In recent decades, with the boom in telecommunications and in computing there has been a huge increase in the number of hi-tech firms in Marijampole. As a result, new shops, bars, restaurants and night clubs have opened to meet the growing demand.
Anybody can come here if they're looking for a cheap place to rest.
P.S. I had this man writing me he's thinking of opening a brand new night club in Marijampole, if you're still around, please, drop me a line.

Our county is blessed with fertile plains, the scenic slopes of the river Nemunas to the north, and an impressive range of hills to the south.
The rationally planned network of roads and railways provides good conditions for transit services. In Kybartai, there is one of the most important customs points on Lithuania's border with Russia's Kaliningrad enclave, and the Kalvarija customs point is the country's main gateway to the Polish Republic and Western Europe. Even though industry has received a lot of attention, the main areas of business are agriculture, the processing of agricultural products, and trade. Tourism and transport services have good prospects.
