Kernave is a very important archeological and historical sight, not only for the history of Lithuania, but also for the history of Europe. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and deservedly so. Finds here date back 13,000 years to the end of the last...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....More
