Language: the Baltic languages are very interesting for the study of Indo-European languages and some linguisticians even believe that Baltic is a direct descendant of the Indo-European root language.
The main Baltic languages were Lithuanian, Latvian, Old Prussian, Semigallian, Curonian, and Selian, Old Prussian has become extinct and Semigallian, Curonian, and Selian have been assimilated into Latvian and Lithuanian.
Nowadays the remaining Baltic languages (Latvian, Lithuanian, and some dialects of those) are spoken in Latvia, Lithuania, and a small part of northeastern Poland.
Example of Baltic languages:

(Universal Declaration of Human Rights article 1)
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
