Languages of publication



Using culinary heritage is a good way to promote sustainable development of tourism in Lithuania. Most tourist have meals during their trips. As research shows, tourists appreciate tasty and health food. This trend gives the opportunity to promote regional cuisine not only among domestic but also among foreign tourists. Consequently, the promotion of culinary heritage enables other tourist attractions to develop, e.g. Lithuanian folk, traditions and customs of the Lithuanian country, and the less-known regions which sometimes are not along the popular tourist routes. Culinary tourism also allows to adapt some chosen cultural heritage facilities for the needs of tourism. Moreover the regions known for their good cuisine and excellent culinary attractions, can “be discovered” for and by foreign visitors. Culinary tourism in Lithuania becomes more and more popular among tourists and the still-growing number of them set off along the offered culinary heritage routes. They are especially popular among the youngest tourists and the organized groups. The interesting and innovative tourist routes, which enable to experience the Lithuanian cuisine, become a superb tourist attraction for foreign visitors.
