Druskininkai and Anastas Cesnulis Park

Published , visited 14 March 2019

In mid-March, we decided to organize a weekend tour and go to a water park in Druskininkai, Lithuania.

I was on vacation, so I chose a weekday for the trip to avoid queues at the border, which happen regularly. The weather was not the most pleasant, with slight nasty rain, but the sun sometimes still glanced, and we managed to walk a little in the neighborhood.

On the way back, we stopped at a fascinating museum of local craftsman Anastas Cesnulis. In this mini-park, which is essentially the manor house and the author’s house, including the workshops, there are many sculptures made of wood.

Some wood sculptures, huh?! But look at the couple below, and you’ll see how alive they are. I suggest you come by if you’re around. It’s an exciting and inspiring space. The ticket price is 4 euros for an adult and 2 euros for a school-age child (cash only).
