Here is an interesting story about the tribe of Samogitians that held the expansion of Teutonic Order for 200 years and kept their pagan traditions alive.

I'm not sure they were the "last" European region to accept Christianity. Pretty sure the Mari, Nenets, and Sami were still not "officially" Christianized at the time of Samogitia's baptism in the early 15th century. The Samogitians did hold out for a while though considering all that pressure from the Crusades...

Aren't the Mari in Europe and still a high percentage pagan?

Indigenous paganism still exists in Europe? I'm not talking about New Age "pagan" revivalism. I am talking about actual, traditional paganism that never entirely disappeared.

Among the Sami, I think that there is still some traditional paganism.
