Overall, there are less than 3000 Muslims in Lithuania according to the last census held in 2001 and 3 Lithuanian Tatars mosques.

I did not know that there are mosques in Lithuania. Are there a Muslim?

The medieval Grand Duchy of Lithuania of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth, stretching from Baltic to Black seas, included some Muslim lands in the south, inhabited by Crimean Tatars. Some of people from those lands were moved into ethnically Lithuanian lands. The Tatars, now referred to as Lithuanian Tatars, lost their language over time and now speak Lithuanian as natives; however, they have not lost Islam as their religion.

Overall, there are less than 3000 Muslims in Lithuania according to the last census held in 2001.
