If you wish to upgrade your travel experience, why not get out of your comfort zone and plan your trips to places you never thought you're set foot in? The world is full of such destinations,--take the Baltic countries, for example.

Lithuania, Estonia, and Latvia, are some of the most interesting countries in the world. This piece will take a closer look at Lithuania. You might think twice about visiting this country, but you'll be surprised. The whole country is unique and charming, and here are some of the reasons why you should include it on your travel bucket list:

The country's Museum of Devils. How often can you say that you've been to a museum dedicated to devil worship? Located in the city of Kaunas, the whole place is teeming with figurines, paintings and other exhibits depicting pagan and devil worship. Mostly, these devilish objects are part of the collection owned by Lithuanian painter Antanas Žmuidzinavičius (1876-1966).

For a European destination, it's very cheap. European vacations have the tend to be quite pricey, but you can enjoy a couple of days in Lithuania without having to break the bank! A pint of beer here can cost lower than €2.50, and you can enjoy some of the beautiful sights in the country for free. Just by walking on Lithuania's medieval-like cobbled streets is an adventure in itself.

Lithuania's Hill of Crosses. Ever seen a hill full of crosses in all shapes and sizes? In Lithuania, you can. This man-made monument is located in Šiauliai, north-central Lithuania, and the place has thousands of crosses left here by pilgrims, visitors, and locals. These crosses are sometimes marked with a backstory or a photo, and trying to discover all of them is not an unpleasant way to spend the day.

The internet is super fast. This place boasts as one of the countries in the world with the fastest internet connection, so if you're an internet junkie, you might want to consider moving here. Downloading tons of your favorite movies can just take a few minutes.

The Curonian Spit is something to behold. The Curonian spit is a 61-mile strip of sand dunes that is picturesque and breathtaking. It is the highest moving sand dune in Europe and is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Try going here in the summer, where the villages and beaches around it come alive.
