Those who are planning to spend holidays in Lithuania will choose between campsites (21% of respondents plan to rest there), personal country houses (20%) and rented apartments or country houses (11%). However, those Lithuanians, who own country houses, admit that its condition is hardly suitable for holidays.

‘36% respondents say that their country houses are completely not suitable or only partially suitable for holidays. They admit that kitchens, terraces and bedrooms – the most commonly used places at weekend houses, are the most problematic ones.

When it comes to home furnishing, the majority will start with outdoor furniture (19%), wardrobes and shelving units (18%). One out of ten is going to buy kitchen, living room and bathroom furniture.’ says E. Čyvė.
