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.

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
