Land O' Lakes: Lithuania


While LITHUANIA is one of the world's smallest countries (just over 65,000 sq. kilometers in area), the Baltic country in Eastern Europe is a land of over 6,000 lakes. As shown in the Bing Map below, most lakes are found in northeastern Lithuania's Aukštaitija ethnographic region and Utena County — near Belarus in the east and Latvia in the north. Other lakes are predominantly found in southern Lithuania, near Belarus and Poland.

Lake Drūkšiai boasts the largest surface area of any Lithuanian lake, spanning an area of almost 49 square kilometers and 19 sq. miles. While Lake Dusia has a smaller surface area (~23 sq. kilometers), it is the largest lake by total volume — containing over 340 cubic kilometers and 81 cubic miles of water. Other Lithuanian lakes include Avilys, Dūkštas, Dysnai, Galstas, Galvė, Luodis, Shlavantas, and Vištytis.
