In the past few months, Lithuania has been recovering from the effects of the pandemic. Lately, new travel restrictions have been introduced due to the increasing case numbers in Europe.😷
If you are planning to travel to Lithuania and coming from one of the countries that is subject to the 14-day quarantine – just like Germany – be aware in the first place! ✈
Despite an upward trend in coronavirus cases, Lithuania continues to be a startup hub of the region. And there is more good news: in the first half of 2020, Lithuanian start-ups showed a 30% growth in turnover. 👏
