The last pagans

Fierce national pride and a love of all things folk are among the ingredients that make up modern Lithuania, finds Simon Busch

As I gnawed on a pig's ear I reflected on the paradox of Lithuania. Here was a country literally at the centre of Europe – a few years ago a clutch of eminent geographers declared the midpoint of the continent to be precisely 26 miles north of the capital, Vilnius – and yet in terms of awareness still hopping about on the periphery.  I was chewing on the ear, among other Lithuanian delicacies, at an old kolkhoz, a Soviet collective farm, near the village of Kernave. Its new owner hoped to turn it into a kind of living museum of Lithuanian history: visitors would be able to ride around on horses, sacking and marauding like the Lithuanian knights of old, as well as pack into a tractor-trailer to go and joyfully till the state-owned fields.
