Vieškūnai Hill Fort

Marių g., Kaunas

The Vieškūnai Hill Fort, also known as the Amaliai Hill Fort or Šuneliškės Hill Fort, located in Palemonas, was discovered only in 1992. Probably because it wasn’t known about for a long time, this is one of the best-preserved hill forts in Lithuania and dates back to the second half of the 14th century. The hill fort provides magnificent views all year round, including a panorama taking in the reservoir, sandy slopes and the pearl of Lithuanian Baroque, the Pažaislis Monastery. In this remote place, you can relax and listen to the singing of birds. Perhaps not surprisingly, nearby is Lakštingalų (nightingale) Valley. In 1937, the poet Salomėja Nėris settled close to the valley, and today you can visit her memorial museum. On the other side of the valley is the Kaunas Yacht Club.
