The fifth largest town in Lithuania has become smaller, yet creative, sporty, green and hospitable, with the ambition to grow and prosper. Panevėžys is a convenient town for both businessmen and travellers as it is in the midway between two capitals – Vilnius and Riga.

It also has a unique means of transport – the last narrow gauge railway in Europe playfully called Siaurukas.
