"Hot Offers for Lithuania: New Year Adventures in the Baltic States", "Christmas Express", "New Year Tour" are among festive trip offers that Lithuania is using to attract Ukrainian travel agencies, next to regular popular weekend tours.

According to the chief advisor of the VTD Raimonda Balnienė, Lithuania saw an outbreak of tourists from Ukraine in the first half of this year.

"Lithuania's tourist accommodation establishments have welcomed by 77 percent more Ukrainians than last year, totalling 20,400. They were provided with accommodation services by 81 percent more than in the first half of 2013 - as many as 36,600. Tourist flows from Ukraine to Lithuania have been surging from 2010. Last year, 32,200 Ukrainians visited our country. These flows would go up even more if we had more air connections, because currently there is only one flight a day with the Ukrainian airlines. Ukrainians are very excited to visit Lithuania and are fond of the country, we definitely feel their great interest in the Lithuanian tourism business mission in Kiev," she said.
