Tour of Lithuanian country side with a focus on history
, Sep 2019
Thanks to our guide Andrius, we learned a lot about what living in the rural Lithuania was like over the past century or more. We learned the some of the small towns continue to be lived in as they have been over the centuries. We especially liked visiting Zervinos and learning about Lithuanian traditions that live on. We also had the opportunity to visit Grutas Park, which presented a disturbing look at life under Soviet rule after the end of WWII.
Basically, a nice, leisurely trip .. good for a chance to see more of the Lithuanian countryside. Trip went to forest area that excelled in wild mushrooms and berries. Tour included trip to outdoor museum of Soviet-era sculptures .. interesting to a point, but no need to see the entire park. Had lunhch in the "Soviet diner" that was only minimally tasty.
