The National Visitor‘s Centre of Protected Areas is like a gateway to Lithuanian protected areas. The exposition will help you to understand what and why needs to be protected, why nature protection is becoming more and more important for the human race. Here you can find information about the most valuable areas from a natural point of view, choose nature routes and travel around our country.

The exposition of the Visitor‘s Centre is interesting not only in terms of the content, but also surprising in terms of visual solutions. When a visitor enters he feels like surrounded by nature: grasslands, birds, grasshoppers all around, looking up - he will see the clouds. You can imagine that you‘ve appeared in a meadow or forest – so much to feel, to touch, to listen...

Each guest has an access to the system of protected areas. To learn that there are 5 national, 30 regional parks, 3 state nature and 2 cultural reserves in Lithuania, about 300 reserves, over 400 state protected objects of natural heritage.

The exceptional value of national and regional parks and reserves is illustrated not only by images, but also by specific objects. In the cinema hall - the residency of bats, you can watch movies, listen to the mysterious sounds of nature.

The information provided in the terminals about the attractions of the protected areas will help you to discover the special places of Lithuania.
