Phrasebooks > Lithuanian phrasebook

Lithuanian (lietuvių kalba) is the official language of Lithuania and is spoken by about 4 million native speakers. The language belongs to the Baltic branch of the Indo-European family. Researchers of Indo-European languages say Lithuanian is the most archaic of all the living Indo-European tongues. In this respect it compares to the earliest Indo-European texts written 2500-3000 years ago. The Commission of the Lithuanian Language is the official regulating organization of the language.

Please note: In bigger Lithuanian cities there are so called "route-taxis" or "micro-buses" going in, they will stop to take you from the street if you raise your hand. The price is the same wherever you go, it is a lot cheaper than going by taxi and a little more expensive than travelling by bus. The disadvantage for non-Lithuanian speakers is that you have to tell the driver where you want to get off just before the stop.
