Lithuania has a temperate continental and sometimes maritime climate due to its northern location and its direct proximity to the Baltic Sea. The temperatures show a relatively large annual cycle especially in the east, while the winters are not quite as severe and the summers are not quite as warm in the Baltic Sea. The warmest month is July with an average temperature between 20 and 23 degrees. The coldest months are January and February. The largest amounts of precipitation fall in the summer months June to August.
The best time for a holiday at the Baltic Sea is from June to August. But also May is very well suited for sightseeing and hiking tours due to the long days.
