After long time I decided to visit one of the best Lithuanian resorts - Druskininkai. Especially I got interested about it after my aunt visited it and suggested me to go to see how beautiful it is. After this visit I am planning to go there for more days in future.
At first, I have seen lots of flowers everywhere, sculptures. City centre is between Nemunas river and Druskonis lake, where nice biking routes are made. What is more, it is hard not to see that there ar so much parks and forests around and different looking sanatoriums - some left from Polish occupation time between First and Second World Wars, some from Soviet times and some are more modern, built recently.
The biggest boom of tourists started a few months ago, when Aqua park started to work in Druskininkai. It is first Aqua park in Lithuania.
The name of Druskininkai has come from word "druskininkas", that means "salt-man". The name of this city was firstly mentioned in 1596. Before that time there was a medieval castle to fight against Teutonic Order. In 1837 Druskininkai got the name of the spa due to mineral waters.
- Pros:Good place to relax at silence and nice landscape
- Cons:Some more places still should be reconstructed
- In a nutshell:Water, forests, flowers and sculptures.
Grutas park is located 7 kilometres from Druskininkai and easily could be reached from Druskininkai and Vilnius.... more travel advice
