Kernave Archaelogical Site (Cultural Preserve) has both indoor and outdoor activities and tours. Better to book a guide to get the real historical analysis and relevance and make your visit a worthwhile experience. The site also has a Catholic Church and nearby restaurant Kernave Slenis and a souvenir shop.

The pictures which I found on the internet didn't impress me much and I couldn't belive it's a UNESCO-sight. However, I decided to go there since I lived very close (in Vilnius). It was a sunny autumn day and the views on and from the hills were just stunning, much better than expected. Kernave is one of the examples of objects which dont seem fantastic when speaking of them, but visiting instead. I even went a second time in January, sliding the snowy hills. Fun place.

That's right, maybe it's rather difficult to find this place. But it's a must to come. Not once, but 4 times at least. You should come to visit this place every season. It's so beautiful and peaceful here. Historical background is creating even stronger impression. Lovely place. You are looking for a great place for picnic? This is it! Meditation? Why not, the place is POWERFUL. Want to train your feets? Well, those hundreds of steps will make you tired.

We had a local guide explain the history of the local culture which was very interesting and helped us understand the site. We walked to the reconstruction of a period village which has very interesting architectural details. One hundred photos later I returned to the bus...

This is a UNESCO PROTECTED site. The city was the former capital of the country. When we arrived the city the street was empty without seeing any car or people. There is a museum in the city but was closed that day. It is extremely quiet and clean. A well paved boulevard led us to a Church. Next to the church it has a wonderful view. There are rolling hills and rivers. If you have energy you may go down to enjoy the nature. However we were too tired that day. This is also the archeological site and protected by UNESCO for further discovery.

An important archaeological site. There isn’t too much to be seen, though. There is a museum, which was closed when I visited in winter. On a good day this is a good place for a walk.

We went on a pleasant afternoon in September. There were few people there and so everything was quiet and very peaceful. But we can be quiet and peaceful in many places, and this did not actually add up to a very stimulating experience, especially considering that it is some distance from Vilnius and hard to reach by public transport..

The mounds are good to see but not very unusual, even in Lithuania as the English-language explanation makes clear. The view over the river is also pretty but not worth going into raptures about. We did not go into the museum, being 'museumed-out' for this one day!

This is an important place perhaps for Lithuanians but it is hard to follow UNESCO's enthusiasm. The English is, as in many places in Lithuania, risible - why can they not ask a native speaker for help? An example, the church is supposedly called 'The Church of The Blessed Virgin Mary of the Scapular'; glossing over the use of the adjective 'scapular' (a medical term rarely used outside the clinic), the English translation should be 'Rosary' which makes more sense. Thanks to Google for this!

Overall, go if you are driving in the area anyway. Otherwise, look at the pictures on the website.

There's actually not much to see, but the area of Lithuanian countryside is very pleasant and calm. Because of the distance and lack of transportation from Vilnius, not very popular, despite its importance. There are more mounds like these for example in the nearby Neries park.

A nice place to escape Vilnius or Kaunas. After long working day or in weekend to have a walk there is a great idea. The views are astonishing. It's even more interesting to come there when medieval festival is taking place
