Travel Forums Europe Travel guide for Lithuania?

My sis and I are tentatively planning a trip to Lithuania with our grandmother next year. She was born there and hasn't been back since she left when she was 6, so it'll be a special trip as well as an adventure to somewhere new.

However, I stopped by the local Ulysses travel bookstore and was told there's no guide specifically for Lithuania - only the Baltic states altogether. It made for a pretty thin volume on Lithuania, though. Anyone know of a decent guide book we can use? I'd prefer an Eyewitness guide, but aparently they haven't deemed one worthy yet.

Thanks!

What about the Bradt Guide which has one of Lithuania alone?
I used one for North Korea because the LP Guide Korea has little information on N-Korea as well. It was very good on information about people, history, nature and culture.
Only disadvantage is that it's worse than LP on maps, very detailed information and choice of accommodation.

Thanks - I'll take a look and see if I can't order one online. They only have the big, basic publishers here, so far as I can tell.
