As early as the IX-XIV centuries, the royal highway was winding through Aukštadvaris from Vilnius through Trakai to Birštonas. It was one of the protected defensive castle lines in Lithuania. This defensive line included Navinpils (Aukštadvaris) Castle, which stood on Aukštadvaris mound at the time. Upon arriving at the visitors' centre of the Aukštadvaris Regional Park, a snippet of the royal highway greets the visitor, bringing him to the exhibition transforming into a fragment of the stone pavement. Along this path from the Middle Ages to modern times, you will become familiar with the most important historical facts mentioning the land of Aukštadvaris. The exposition conveys the hilly, lake, wooded, man-made natural landscape of Aukštadvaris. Here in the highest hills of the Dzūkai Heights, the rivers of Verknė and Strėva begin to flow. The expressive terrain of the regional park dominates. The most interesting pairs of hills and ramps are presented on the interactive cognitive stand. The most famous and visited - the Devil's Pit - nature monument is available at the exhibition. Access to the values of natural and cultural heritage is available in terminals. Those who like to travel around the regional park on foot are invited by bicycles on an interactive map of routes. For those who want to play, we offer to put together a puzzle - a map of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, discovering hidden treasures of folklore.
