  • In the national park there are some interesting places that are not specified separately. This is the Kirkilay Tower, 32 meters high for the observation of karst lakes and a karst dip 12 meters deep, near which there is a monument to the cow. The tower offers beautiful views of the lakes and wooden footpaths. In the dip you can go down the stairs, and the cow is very nice :) These attractions are located in different places, but relatively not far from the Exchange and from each other. There are free parking lots and information stands in Lithuanian and English. There is a free toilet near the tower in the parking lot.
