Tytuvėnai Regional Park
 

Tytuvėnai Regional Park

One of the marvelous components of local landscape is so called lake chain. These lakes, tighten up together with one thread, are located along the valleys, which are formed from glaciers melting. It would be difficult to imagine Tytuvenai regional park without wetlands, stone dams called ‘rūža’ (from Lithuanian - bank), Tytuvenai church and monastery architectural ensemble, and the chapel of Šiluva.

Landscapes

Expressive hilly, lake and swampy landscapes are the part of ice age heritage. Wavy hilly plains turn into lowlands, forming massive peatbogs. Viscous forests of Užpelkiai are located in a place of ice age lagoon, graceful sand hills and rocky pine forests. Spacious wetlands here are called tyruliai.

Inanimate nature

Expressive hills, deep ravines, huge elongated hollows of swamps and lakes (Bridvaišis, Gilius, Apušis and Gauštvinis). Only in Lithuania one can find unique stone banks, formed from glaciers, which are called ‘rūžomis ‘ by the locals.

Nature

Next to Gauštvinis lake there is an abundance of humid bog forests, which are populated by rare species of plants and animals. Very diversified landscape results in high biological diversity of the park: bogs, boggy lakes, operating peatlands, dry hills, overgrown by pines and dark firs.

Cultural heritage

The most famous cultural object in Tytuvenai is the church and monastery architectural ensemble from the 17th century. Spacious yard, surrounded by closed Lithuanian gallery, with a chapel with steps in the center, by which those who come to pray go up. In a monastery in authentic monks’ cells lots of fresco paintings are made. Splendid chapel of Šiluva is built upon the project of well-known architect Antanas Vivuliškis. Here there is also an attractive old market square with several old wooden houses surrounding it. There are lots of pagan memorials like Bridvaišis, Šiauleliai, Pašakarnėlis and Kudinis castle hills, Kuršis, Debeikis, Rinkšelis tumuluses (burial mounds), as well as former shrine of pagans – Saint Jurgis Hill.

Memoramble events, relevant traditions, historical facts and personalities. For about four centuries Šiluva attracts believers. And since 1608 it has one of five officially recognized churches.
