This tour will start from driving to the Lithuanian Troy – Kernave, the archeological site located on the picturesque bank of the Neris River. People have settled and been buried here since immemorial time. UNESCO recognized the importance of the area that presents an exceptional testimony to the evolution of human settlements in the Baltic region for some ten millennia. However, for Lithuanians, Kernave is the symbol of statehood and the first capital of pagan Lithuania, about which there are many legends and stories.
We will walk the famous hill forts of Kernave and listen to the story of this one of the oldest Lithuanian towns.
Continue to ethnographic village Grabijolai to discover Lithuanian traditions and way of life outside the boundaries of big cities.
In between these two amazing places, we will make a stop at the local crafts center to learn how to weave Verbos – a decoration made of dried flowers, plants, and moss. It is originated in the Vilnius region since the 16th century and traditionally used for the Palm Sunday celebration.
