Abstract

The paper deals with the analysis of the pilgrimage management structure in Lithuania. The author presents the possible intervention framework of the pilgrimage’s management. The network of sacred places in Lithuania is the main resource of the religious tourism and pilgrimage. Analysis includes historic background, and contemporary novelties of the network of pilgrim sites. Travellers and stakeholders become more and more important in the management system. Various NGOs, as the Community of Lithuanian Pilgrims, play an important role in promoting pilgrim sites and pilgrimage. However, the main strategies and projects of the pilgrimage development in Lithuania are related to the creation of new pilgrim routes. Despite diversification, the phenomenon of religious tourism and pilgrimage is viable and involves travellers to consume these historic and contemporary religious pilgrimage routes.
