«G-spot» of Europe» Vilnius' new tourism slogan
Vilnius, the capital of mostly Catholic Lithuania, has launched a new, sexually-coloured tourism campaign, where the city is compared to a hidden point of female sexual pleasure.
«Nobody knows where it is but when you find it – it’s amazing,» reads the expanded slogan on the web site Vilniusgspot.com, where visitors are invited to build their «personal pleasure map» of the Lithuanian capital.
British news portal The Independent reports that critics from the Catholic clergy have questioned the timing of the campaign in a country where the majority of residents identify as Catholic. Pope Francis is expected to visit Lithuania in the end of September.
The campaign, however, has strong support of Vilnius’ liberal Mayor, Remigijus Šimašius, and Inga Romanovskienė, head of the Vilnius Tourism and Business Development Agency.
