What do I need to know about living in Lithuania?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Lithuania, they said:

"Living in Alytus is very cheap. A simple apartment will run you a fraction of what it does in other European countries. For a foreigner first moving to Alytus will cause great culture shock but after some getting used to you will really love the small details that makes this city great," commented one expat who made the move to Alytus.

What is life like in Lithuania?

When we asked people living in Lithuania what life is like and how people spend their time, they said:

"This is a very typical Lithuanian city. There is a very small international population. Most people have lived in this city all of their lives and can recognize a lot of their friends by simply walking down the street," added another expat who made the move to Alytus.

Is there a lot of diversity? Are people in Lithuania accepting of differences?

"The people are very closed up. There is little cultural diversity unlike Vilnius. But there won't be any backlash for a foreigner. People tend to accept internationals. It is a very quaint town and feels very homey," mentioned another expat in Alytus.
