"Kernave - the morning of great history" Kernave by Raimix

Kernave Travel Guide: 19 reviews and 47 photos

First time I have seen Kernave was in year 1997. I don't kept in mind that trip and this, new trip, was really enjoyable for me. Moreover, every time coming to Kernave things changes - more interesting expositions in museum, festival of pagan-rock, days of old archaeology, St Johns day and more celebrations takes place there.

A new thing to me - in 2004 Kernave was inscribed on UNESCO World Heritage list. This small village, but the first capital of Lithuania in the past, is worth of it.

To sum up, this nice place takes to first steps of Lithuanian history and give a view of Lithuanian village.

It is such feeling in Kernave that old castles and the first capital of Lithuania gone somewhere and now it is only a small village with some things to see and these things show us the remains of past. It is like Lithuanian "Troy".
I know, that in some other countries that happened as well - the first capitals of that countries is now just simple villages or small cities (Lets say, Visegrad in Hungary).

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Really gloriuos and silent place.
  • Cons:Nothing.
  • In a nutshell:Remains of the past and beatiful nature in surroundings of river Neris.
