What country owns Lithuania?
In Lithuania, flat landscapes alternate with slightly hilly or undulating ones. In the west is the Baltic Ridge, in the southeast are the foothills of the Belorussian Ridge. Both are chains of hills that were formed as a result of glacial movements. The highest mountain in Lithuania is also located on the border with Belarus, but it is rather low at 293 meters.
In the northeast is the lake district of High Lithuania, but there are also some lakes in the south. In Belarus, the rivers Memel and Neris originate, which then both flow through Lithuania. The Neris flows into the Memel and then into the Baltic Sea.
Almost a third of Lithuania is covered by forest. Bogs and swamps occupy about 3 percent of the country’s area.
