When I came to Lithuania, I thought that it was a little bit bigger than it really is. At least, towns and cities I have been are smaller than what I expected. For example, Marijampole is one of the biggest cities in Lithuania (5th or 6th) but for me and for where I come from it’s a just a town. Not a big one. At first, it was shocking for me, but I’m still enjoying it, because it’s kind of a place where I feel comfortable living at. Small, quite and not noisy town.
Having Marijampole has an example, when I went to Kaunas it was completely different what I expected as well. I thought it was going to be a noisy city, with stressed people running from one place to another. But I think I didn’t meet Kaunas and Vilnius as they really are, because of this Covid situation. Streets, restaurants and cultural places were almost empty.
