On the bank of Lake Asveja, which is the longest and one of the most beautiful lakes in Lithuania, there is the town of Dubingiai, where one of the palaces of the noble Radvila family, as well as an evangelical reformed church, stood on a large hill in the 16th-17th century. The ruins which remain are impressive, and tell a story of their own. The excavation site is set up to accommodate visitors – entire layers of history are opened up for them to see. Archaeologists claim that from an archaeological point of view, this is one of the most interesting places in Lithuania. Several hundred valuable objects have been discovered here. The oldest is a coin dating back to the time of Lithuanian Grand Duke Vytautas (beginning of the 15th century), and the latest are fragments of the Radvila family‘s marble tombstones (around 1630). Quite a few remains have been found in the churchyard and basement of the church; they are considered to be of the Radvilas – one of the most powerful noble families in Lithuania.
Zervynos is an ethnographic village in the Varėna district, Lithuania. It is situated within the territory of the Dzukija National Park near the Ula river. Zervynos has 48 homesteads, where 8 homesteads and 32 separate buildings are officially declared ethnographic monuments. The village was among the sites short-listed for nomination for the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Zervynos was first mentioned in written sources in 1742. However, 24 campsites, dating from the Stone and Iron Ages, show that people lived in the area for much longer time. Inhabitants were mostly fishers, hunters, gatherers of many of the forest's goods. In the 18th century the village was divided by the Ūla River: the right bank was in the Varėna eldership of Trakai Voivodeship while the left side was in the Kaniava eldership of Vilnius Voivodeship.The right bank evolved from a village owned by a noble and the left bank from a settlement of forest workers. Both sides had about 10 homesteads and a hundred inhabitants.
Fragments of Medininkai brick castle built in the 14th century – the extant sections of the defence wall with tower remnants, and moats with ramparts – give a good idea of the defence architecture of Lithuania in the Middle Ages. At that time Medininkai was one of the largest towns and defence centres of Lithuania. One of the first seven churches was constructed in Medininkai directly after the christening of Lithuania in 1387, on the order of the Grand Duke of Lithuania Vytautas. Lithuania’s highest summits, Aukštasis and Juozapinė Hills (almost 300 meters above sea level) are located in the Medininkai highlands.
