Kernavė is the Troy of Lithuania. The picturesque shores of the Neris and the amphitheater of Pajauta Valley are spotted with hillforts, where ancient settlements and burial sites can be found. The small territory of 194 ha in area has cultural valuables, an abundancy of archeological findings and a landscape that has taken years to develop. All of this tells us about the cultures that were prominent here 11 thousand years ago, i.e. from the late Paleolithic period (9 thousand years BC) to these days.
