>The people of lithuania speak lithuanian and latvian Ive been all around lithuania and ive met only 2 people who speak latvian, it would've been better to say that lithuanians also speak russian (like many ex-ussr countries) as an unofficial language. On a side-note you should've talked about the cultural facts relating to lithuania when talking about some of the illiustrations. (ex.: How the wolfs depicted on the talonas simbolize a dream grand duke gediminas had, which featured an iron wolf howling on a hill, on which he then built Gedimino pilis (Gediminas' Castle).)

Lithuania did not adopt Euro in 2004 when it joined EU. It adopted Euro in 1 January 2015
