LITHUANIA A NEW DISCOVERY It is an area of islands and waterways, extensive  shing and the main port of call for migrating birds. Among the typical  shing villages here are Minge, the ' Venice of Lithuania', where the River Minija serves as its main street. Protected as architectural monuments, 19th - century wooden houses stand on both riverbanks. The low- lying delta of the Nemunas, Lithuania's largest river has great potential for outdoor activities. The wetlands, protected as a regional park, are a popular spot for angling and bird- watching. Every spring, when the snow and ice melt, 20 per cent of the delta gets ³ ooded, attracting 200 species of birds to breed, while hundreds of other species migrate through that area every year. A bird ringing station at Vente is one of the oldest in Europe. More infomation: www. nemunodelta. lt NEMUNAS DELTA
