  • What NOT to do
  • What to do
  • Do not try to speak Russian to Lithuanians, we have our own Lithuanian language. It is not similar to Russian, so don't ask if it is. Lithuania was occupied by Russia twice, and Lithuanian language was banned in 19th century, so it is a very delicate topic. --Lilith

  • Take your shoes off, when entering someone’s home! Usually, right after you enter the house, there is an obvious dedicated place. It’s custom to say “don’t take your shoes off” - even as a local I get lost on what to do then, but still 99% of the time I take those shoes off :) --GL
