I have followed your link (tag) "Church" to this beautiful church in your country. Now I have enlarged the map. I see that your country is not Lietuwa (Litouwen), but Latvija (Letland). I have choosen for my tag "Religieus", because of also other objects than only churchs. So as bells and beelden. But I can make "church" as tag too. Thanks for the tip.

Thanks for interesting links!

Thank You for interest about my country too! In fact, there is lot in common between Lithauen and Latvia. Common language, it rised from indo-european roots. Common history, common nature lanscapes, both countries are agricultural with lots of green forests and flat green fields.

But one of points, where our nations is different - Lithauens are mostly Roman Catholics but Latvians are mostly, by percentage - (Martin Luther) protestants and only then less part spread over Roman Catholics, Old believers and Orthodox.
