Europos lietuvis – project by L.A.B.A.S.

Main idea and mission of our project is to gather and present most relevant information about Lithuanians and their activities in Europe.

Lithuania (/ˌlɪθjuˈeɪniə/ (About this soundlisten); Lithuanian: Lietuva [lʲɪɛtʊˈvɐ]), officially the Republic of Lithuania (Lithuanian: Lietuvos Respublika), is a country in the Baltic region of northern-eastern Europe.

 

Since its independence, Lithuania has been referred to as one of the Baltic states. It is situated along the southeastern shore of the Baltic Sea, to the east of Sweden and Denmark.

 

It is bordered by Latvia to the north, Belarus to the east and south, Poland to the south, and Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) to the southwest.

Lithuania has an estimated population of 2.7 million people as of 2018, and its capital and largest city is Vilnius. Other major cities are Kaunas and Klaipėda. Lithuanians are Baltic people.

 

The official language, Lithuanian, along with Latvian, is one of only two living languages in the Baltic branch of the Indo-European language family.

 

For centuries, the southeastern shores of the Baltic Sea were inhabited by various Baltic tribes.

 

With the Lublin Union of 1569, Lithuania and Poland formed a voluntary two-state personal union, the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth. The Commonwealth lasted more than two centuries, until neighboring countries systematically dismantled it from 1772 to 1795, with the Russian Empire annexing most of Lithuania’s territory.

 

As World War I neared its end, Lithuania’s Act of Independence was signed on 16 February 1918, declaring the founding of the modern Republic of Lithuania. In the midst of the Second World War, Lithuania was first occupied by the Soviet Union and then by Nazi Germany.

 

As World War II neared its end and the Germans retreated, the Soviet Union reoccupied Lithuania. On 11 March 1990, a year before the formal dissolution of the Soviet Union, Lithuania became the first Baltic state to declare itself independent, resulting in the restoration of an independent State of Lithuania.

 

Lithuania is a member of the European Union, the Council of Europe, eurozone, Schengen Agreement, NATO and OECD. It is also a member of the Nordic Investment Bank, and part of Nordic-Baltic cooperation of Northern European countries. The United Nations Human Development Index lists Lithuania as a “very high human development” country.

About us

EUROPOS LIETUVIS is a project inspired and created by active and enterprising Lithuanians living abroad.

 

The aim of this project is to collect and share information about Lithuanians living in all European countries. About their diverse activities – cultural, political, scientific, economic, etc. The aim is also to gather information that is useful and useful to every Lithuanian who has come to any European country for the first time, so that he can quickly and efficiently find all the information he needs and interest in any European country.

 

The website will publish the contacts and details of Lithuanians operating in any European country: Lithuanian schools, Lithuanian communities, business companies, various services, cooperation projects, as well as regularly described and promoted events.

 

In order to realize our idea as effectively as possible, contacts are currently being established with Lithuanians living in other countries, communities that will provide the information. During the project, it is planned to create Lithuanian television and radio, organize conferences, build bridges between countries and communicate live.

 

The material will be archived so that you can look at historical information at any time, which will not go anywhere and allow everyone to see specific moments.

 

In the future, it is planned to extend the borders of European Lithuania and to gather information outside the EU countries and our countrymen living there.
Project promoters will strive to keep the information up to date and complete.
Only with the involvement of all we will be able to enjoy positive results, so let’s educate, learn, improve, act, share, publicize, publish knowledge, success stories and discoveries together!!!
