In the 13th century Kernavė was probably the first Lithuanian state capital. At that time it was a wooden town of feudal artisans and merchants and one of the major economic centers of the country. Five fortified mounds served to protect the Duke’s castle and the town. There are more than one thousand of these ancient mounds in Lithuania, but this is the only place where you will find so many of them together.
The tour will continue in the medieval capital of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania – Kernavė, which is an archaeological site included into UNESCO World Heritage list in 2004. Kernavė Archaeological Site, situated in the valley of the river Neris in eastern Lithuania, provides evidence of human settlements spanning some 10 millennia. Covering an area of 194.4 ha, it contains archaeological evidence of ancient land use from the late Palaeolithic Period to the Middle Ages. It comprises a complex ensemble of archaeological elements, including the town of Kernavė, a unique complex of impressive hillforts, unfortified settlements, burial sites and other archaeological, historical and cultural monuments. The tour will include visiting the Archaeological and Historical Museum housing over 20,000 artefacts, 5 impressive hillforts in Pajauta Valley, open-air museum presentation.
