VILNIUS, Nov. 14 (Xinhua) -- The new parliament of Lithuania gathered for its first sitting on Monday to take charge of the country's legislation for the coming four years.

The new parliament is dominated by new faces and members of parliament (MPs) from the Peasants and Greens Union (LVZS), the winner of the parliamentary elections. Eighty-two MPs in the 141-seat parliament are new or have returned to the Seimas after at least a four-year break. LVZS, the leader of the new ruling coalition, secured 56 seats at the elections three weeks ago.

Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite, who visited the Seimas on Monday to address the new MPs, emphasized that the high number of new MPs meant Lithuanian people want new policy. She urged MPs to contribute to the transformation of the political system.

"For thousands of Lithuanian citizens, you have become a new hope," Grybauskaite told the parliament, noting the country wanted "indifference to turn into empathy, selfishness into responsibility, professionalism to replace ignorance, and decisive policy to replace inaction."

"It's in your hands," she said.

Six parliamentary groups have been formed in the new Seimas. The Social Democratic Party (LSDP) -- the leader of the outgoing government, who came third in the parliamentary elections with 17 seats -- now has 19 MPs in their group. Last week, LSDP agreed with LVZS to form the ruling coalition and got three ministers out of 14 in the government.

The ruling coalition is to have 78 members in the 141-seat Seimas.

The parliament's biggest opposition group, the conservative party the Homeland Union - Lithuanian Christian Democrats (TS-LKD), has 31 seats, followed by the Liberal Movement of Lithuania with 14 MPs.

The election of the speaker of the Seimas was among the first tasks for the new parliament. Late Monday, agronomist Viktoras Pranckietis, a newbie in the Seimas and proposed by LVZS, was elected to lead the Seimas. His candidacy was supported by 93 MPs.

"Today we are all are obliged to create a new page of Lithuanian history," Pranckietis said in his speech to the Seimas after the voting. He named the new Seimas "the parliament of hope."

With the first sitting of the new parliament, the outgoing government has returned its mandate to the president. On Monday, Grybauskaite signed the decree for the government to continue its work until the new cabinet takes office early December.

VIENNA Nike Shox Nederland , March 28 (Xinhua) -- The historical city of Salzburg in Austria's west has maintained its position as a major European tourist destination on the enduring strength of some of its main attractions, a tourism manager from the city claimed.

Klemens Kollenz, sales and marketing manager at Tourismus Salzburg GMBH, said in an interview two key attractions are responsible for the continued influxes of large numbers of visitors, including more and more from China.

The first is due to the town being the birthplace of world-famous composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Air Jordan 1 Off White Nederland , with his childhood home still featuring as a prominent attraction in the Old Town city center, and whose name is almost synonymous with the city.

The other is the enduring legacy of the 1965 film The Sound of Music, filmed in the city and surrounding area, that has brought generations of fans to see firsthand the landscape that provided the backdrop for the movie.

In addition, Kollenz said the picturesque nature of the city -- the Old Town that has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997 Nike Presto Off White Nederland , the Hohensalzburg Castle, Mirabell Palace and gardens, cathedral, traditional lanes and public squares, as well as the lakes Nike Blazer Off White Nederland , forests, and mountains just outside the city -- remains a drawcard for visitors from far and wide.

Festivals are also an integral part of the attraction of the city, such as the annual Salzburg Festival, which includes renowned performers and brings in visitors from across the globe, and which will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2020.

It is also no coincidence that the main tourist influx occurs in July and August Nike Air Force 1 Off White , when the festival takes place, he added.

The tourism industry is vital to the local economy -- one in four people in the whole state is employed this way, Kollenz said.

It is thus imperative to continue to market the city abroad, he said, citing China as an example of where tourist numbers to the city have continued to climb.

He said overnight stays from Chinese visitors reached 105 Nike Air Max 90 Off White ,000 in 2015, a huge 39 percent increase from a year earlier, and representing an upward trend observed since 2010. This now makes China the second-most important overseas market behind only the United States, he added.

Chinese guests are in particular drawn to the two main attractions of Mozart and The Sound of Music, he said. Chinese-speaking guides as well as Chinese audio guides in some of the city museums are targeted toward this part of the tourist demographic.

Efforts are also being made to promote the environmental aspects of the city to foreign guests Nike Air Max 97 Off White , Kollenz said. Guests are able to enjoy the city, but also follow walking trails and can, in no time, be in the middle of "unspoiled nature," such as through forests or up mountains that offer views of the city.

In addition Nike Vapormax Off White , special "Salzburg Card" tourist cards are available to purchase either online, at information kiosks, or in hotels, that include one, two and three day entrance passes to all attractions Nike Off White Nederland , museums, as well as the use of public transport.

Special attention will also again be given to Mozart this year as it coincides with the 260th anniversary of his birth. Kollenz said the jubilee will be given special public relations attention, particularly in markets where his name carries greater weight.

The brand "Mozart" does not, however, require modernization or modification to keep up with the times Nike Air VaporMax Nederland , Kollenz argued, sayin.
