The village located on the banks of the river Neris(35 km from Vilnius) has been known as the capital of Lithuania before Trakai and Vilnius. Archeological excavations uncovered a medieval settlement dating back to the 12th century. Kernave’s Archaeological and Historical Museum/ Reserve contains several precious exhibits. In Kernave you will be able to climb 5 mounds and enjoy a superb breath- taking view of the river valley graced by the bends of the river Neris. Few great traditional events are held in Kernave every year: on 23d of June - ‘Midsummer’s day’ - with the night fires on the mounds, traditional dances and songs, and on the 5th – 7th of July - ‘Days of live archeology’ - showing re-created handicrafts, life style, heritage of a spiritual culture of the early middle ages.
