A nicely renovated fort in which the Lithuanian historical museum was made. You could get there by bus, but after leaving the bus you have to find your own way (through the small forest and under the highway) - there are no signs.

Our guide (Olga) was very knowledgeable and gave us a great insight into how this fort came into being and it was used for many purposes (prison etc).
