Lithuania 's latest campaign to boost tourism by describing its capital city as Europe 's G - Spot has been criticised by the Catholic Church ahead of Pope Francis' visit. Advertising campaign introducing # Lithuania n capital #Vilnius as " the G - Spot of Europe ", is the best for the international market

Playing off the idea of a G-spot — the mythically hard-to-find spot on the female body known to induce intense sexual pleasure — this new campaign aims to present the city as a travel destination for millennials and more.

Inga Romanovskienė, Director of Go Vilnius, the Vilnius Tourism and Business Development Agency, said in a press release yesterday, "When it comes to attracting the modern tourist we’re dealing with a very high level of competition with other European cities and countries investing heavily in destination marketing. The young creatives who came up with 'Vilnius; the G-spot of Europe' presented an extremely engaging idea to drive interest in the city."

Crystal Palace reportedly interested in Jack Butland

  Crystal Palace reportedly interested in Jack Butland Crystal Palace and Leicester City are both interested in signing Jack Butland from Stoke City this summer, according to a report from Sky Sports. It’s claimed that Chelsea have lined up the England international as a potential replacement for Thibaut Courtois, with the Belgian looking set for a move to Real Madrid. However, the report also indicates that Palace have expressed an interest in signing Butland, who Stoke apparently value in the region of £30 million. The shot-stopper is believed to be keen on leaving the Potters this summer after they were consigned to relegation down to the Championship last season. However, a key desire of Butland’s is, according to Sky Sports, to play for a club competing in the top six of the Premier League next term, which would be a stumbling block for Palace if they were to pursue a deal for the player. The Eagles completed the signing of Vicente Guaita on a free transfer this summer after reaching a pre-contract agreement with the ex-Getafe man earlier in the year, indicating that they are perhaps not in the market for a new goalkeeper. Nevertheless, Roy Hodgson’s men have been linked with Butland by Sky Sports, with the former Birmingham City star continuing to be the subject of much speculation.

A cheeky tourist ad that proclaims Lithuanian capital Vilnius the ‘ G - spot of Europe ’ and gives a smart explanation to the metaphor has not However, the company said the city authorities in Vilnius were satisfied with the result and plan to develop the idea further. Trends: Europe news Lithuania news.

The poster produced by two students referring to Lithuania ’s capital as Europe ’s G - spot really sums the city up: it is not where you thought it was. It is not in eastern Europe , not even in central Europe , but the capital of a Baltic state in northern Europe .

Some Lithuanian priests "expressed concerns that the ad used 'women’s sexuality for advertising' and gave 'wrong ideas' about Vilnius," in addition to previously requesting the campaign be postponed until after Pope Francis’ visit, according to the Associated Press.

Jurgis Ramanauskas, one of the student creators of the campaign, said in the press release, "Few people know where Vilnius really is, but when they arrive they fall in love with the city. This insight came from our conversations with international visitors, and we formulated the idea that Vilnius is synonymous with the G-spot theory — nobody knows where it is, but, when it is discovered, everyone is very pleased!"

While it’s unclear how this will play into the impending papal visit, Lithuanian Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis said to Lithuanian public broadcaster LRT on Tuesday, "I think it’s a strange advertising choice, but I believe it does not cross the line in a democratic country."
