Neris Regional Park
 

Neris Regional Park

Neris Regional Park protects the landscape of the northern edge of the Dzūkai upland that is crosscut by the valley of the mid-Neris with its unique loops.

Nature

The main features include the loop system of the mid-Neris, the rich habitats of rare plants in the lower reaches of the Bražuolė and by the Vepriai group of lakes, the forest communities in the Neris valley, and the spring at Saidžiai. The oak forest in Dūkštos is the largest in Lithuania, and the oaks of Vaigeliškės and Ąžuolų karalienė (The Queen of Oaks) are protected as monuments of nature.

Cultural heritage

One of the oldest systems of settlements and archaeological values in Lithuania lies along the river Neris between Vilnius and Kernavė, and includes the church and cemetery in Dūkštos, Paneriai Park, the castle hills of Karmazinai, Buivydai, Bradeliškės, Velniakampis, Viršupis, Naujoji Rėva, Stirniai and Rėva that are witnesses of the distant past and our forefathers’ epoch, the burial mounds at Karmazina, and the cemeteries at Grabijolai and Gelažiai-Antakalniai. The oak forest in Dūkštos has a mysterious stone with old runic inscriptions.

The area of the burial mounds at Karmazinai is the largest in the Vilnius district. The mounds could have been built in the 6–8th centuries. The Karmazinai burial site along with the mounds of Popai, Žemieji Semeniukai, Zabarija, Paalioji, Grabijolai, Sidaroniai and Vepriai comprises a significant part of the park’s cultural heritage. Three burial mounds at Karmazinai have been restored to their former condition.
