During this tour we will travel to Anykščiai, located on the bank of the Šventoji River. We will learn the origin of the name of this city. And believe me, there are not many of them. Due to the beauty of its surroundings in Lithuania, Anykščiai has been declared a resort area, surrounded by hills and we will probably not find anyone who has not heard of the beauty of the Anykščiai forest.

Here we will walk through the tops of the trees – the Lajų trail. This is the first such trail in the Baltic States and throughout Eastern Europe. Here we will rise from the ground to the tops of the trees, and after climbing its observation tower, located at a height of 21 m, we will see the bends of the Šventoji River and the panorama of the famous Anykščiai bush. We will also see the most famous and the second largest stone in Lithuania – Puntukas stone. According to the legend, the devil carried a stone of greatness with as if pure, and wanted to throw it on the church of Anykščiai, but the roosters sang and the stone remained in the forest. The bas-reliefs of Lithuanian pilots who crossed the Atlantic Ocean, Steponas Darius and Stasys Girėnas are carved on its surface.

We will visit Anykščiai church  which has the highest church towers in Lithuania, their height is even 79 m. We will climb to the observation deck at a height of 33 m, from which the city of Anykščiai, the river Šventoji that separates it and the surroundings of the city will open in the middle.

Steam locomotive “Kukuška”, other narrow gauge rolling stock, communication and signaling means and many other exhibits. At the station we will be in the waiting hall and in the office of the head of the interwar Lithuanian station and see what the “bunny” ticket looks like. Here it will be possible to test working exhibits – a manual railcar or a rail tricycle.
