PARK

Main page   »   PARK

A mixed-type 18-19th century park was set up instead of Samogitian’s sacred forest – Žemaičių alkas (Samogitian pagan shrine). Since 1986, the park has been a protected natural monument of national significance.
The pride of the park is one of the oldest and biggest oaks in Lithuania – Perkūnas oak, also the Crying linden which is wrapped in legends, and the Five-trunk ash. By order of the duke Mykolas Oginskis, seven cascade ponds were excavated which were connected by stone bridges-canals. The park has an extraordinary landscape as it is traversed by the Babrungas River.
