The first stop on this tour will be in the Geographical Center of Europe, not far from Vilnius. In 1989, a group of French scientists from the institute announced that the geographical centre of Europe was just to the north of the Lithuanian capital Vilnius – 26 kilometres to be exact – near the village of Purnuskes.
Then we‘ll go to the Moletai Observatory and have a posibility to enjoy beautifull panoramic view from telescope tower.
Our way to Aukštaitija National Park will go though very old Labanoras Wood. There we will stop to visit Fishing Museum.
At over 400 km2, Lithuania’s first national park (1974) offers a breathtaking break away from it all. Thirty rivers, over one hundred lakes, large wooded areas featuring 200-year-old-plus oaks, marshes, and villages entirely overlooked by the creeping claws of progress all make for the ideal antidote to life in the fast lane.
Although by no means complete, the following information represents the high points of the region. What interesting places are there to see?
Ginuciai Water Mill – supposedly hounted by the devil, and nearly 200 years old, the water mill is the only one in the region that has preserved all of its original working apparatus and visitors are free to snoop around its guts.
Ladakalnis – with a peak that measures an impressive (for Lithuania) 175 m, Ladakalnis offers sensational panoramic views of the dense forestland and lakes below.
An ancient Beekeeping Museum – founded in 1974 by Bronius Kazlas, is one of the oddest things you’ll ever come across. Attracting around 10,000 visitors annually the museum, situated in a rustic cottage, depicts the art of bee-keeping throughout the ages, as well as exploring its spiritual links. Guests are welcome to sample their honey at the end of their visit.
