Lithuania is located in northern Europe, on the eastern side of the Baltic Sea. Lithuania is bordered by Latvia to the north, Belarus to the east and south east, and Poland and the Kaliningrad area of Russia to the south west. To the west lies the Baltic Sea. The terrain is mostly flat, with only a few areas near the eastern border higher than 200 m (656 ft) above sea level. There are many lakes, moors and bogs but plenty of fertile soil has resulted in a large agricultural industry. The total land area is 65,200 sq km (25,174 sq miles).
The Population of 3.7 million (2000 figure) comprises 80% of Lithuanian origin, 9% Russian, 7% Polish, 2% Belorussian and 2% other ethnic groups. The capital city is Vilnius.
