The Museum was closed on the day that we travelled to Kernave, but we were able to walk around the reserve. Unfortunately there was no signage or information whatsoever so we were unable to understand fully what the mounds were about. Also, there is only one public toilet and it was locked. There was one cafe and it was also... More

Only after checking the street name we parked our car and went for a walk on one of the streets of this small town, past the shop and post office, with a large church... More

I was here this summer. The museum of ancient history is modern. I climbed into all mounds. Even you are wearing hils you can do it because there are wooden stairs. You can see ruins of very very old Catolics church next to the mounds. Landscape is very beautiful.

Spring is the best time to visit Kernave, some 40 km from Vilnius centre to North-West, Ancient castle hills are covered by perfect green grass. Master-view on Neris valley from Mindaugas throne castle hill. Just imagine how busy this ancient site was some 10 or 20 hundred years before, If you do not like company of other visitors, come during... More
