International Jazz festival
Lithuanians like Jazz. Basically there are 4 international Jazz festivals Kaunas Jazz, Vilnius Jazz, Klaipeda Jazz and Birstonas Jazz. They have very particular atmospheres, there're a lot of people prefering Birstonas Jazz festival. It takes place every second year , on even years (so the next one is 2006) on the last weekend of March. More info on their website.

Lazy to tidy up? Don't move to live in Birstonas
Sometimes I think that some Lithuanians are a bit lazy to tidy up and clean their living areas, so they tend to be similar to South Europeans like Italians and Greek. But people in Birstonas are the Number 1 clean people in the whole Lithuania. The whole area was well arranged, the grass on the lawns mown, benches near the Nemunas river not broken (!), rubbish bins used for the purpose (!) and so on.. Even this little old house which I found on my way to the Nemunas was clean and tidy.
P.S. I had to ran after this hen to have her in my pic! Probably she didn't want to be famous ..
