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.

8000 years of human occupation - a wonderful UNESCO World Heritage site. Good signs and some reconstructions. A small shop. Nice walk to explore. And a small but informative new museum with archaeological finds nearby. Well worth a visit

On one level there's just a few mounds - but what mounds! These grassy lumps are traces of very,very early settlements, and are of very special archaeological and anthropological - interest recognised by UNESCO. On another level in the snow it's potentially a fun place...More

We found this was very interesting, but you either need guide to explain the area and its significance, or you will need to do some reading before you arivee here. However, it is also just a beautiful setting to enjoy veiws of the countryside.

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...More

Kernave was the medieval capital of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. It is located ~40 km outside Vilnius and is well worth a visit. Even if you don't climb all mounds, the views are breathtaking!

The place takes around 30 min to walk around. I visited in summer so the nature was all green. Since there are higher hills, the panoramic view is very beautiful. It is a good place to combine for a day trip outside Vilnius. Unfortunately, the...More

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
