Useful Information About Lithuania

Lithuania is what remains of a great kingdom in the 13th Century that has since reduced to a minuscule Baltic state. It was the last European country to accept Christianity, and pagan customs such as public toilet racing or the longest hair competition are still widely practiced.

Lithuania is the only country to debut the Eurovision with 0 points and the only Baltic state that never won the contest (or even made the top 5). The best Lithuanian result in fact carried a German flag when Lena Valaitis finished 2nd in 1981.
