The places of interest

Visiting Kacergine the guests can see the houses of the following writers: J.Biliunas, P.Masiotas, V.Mykolaitis-Putinas and the monument to V.Mykolaitis-Putinas. They can visit the park with oak sculptures carved in memory of P.Masiotas.

The guests who are interested in the past of Lithuania can also visit the mound of Pypliai which is located two kilometres to the east of Kacergine on the slope of the Nemunas. Two historians I.Ivinskis and K.Paunksnis supposed that famous Pilenai might have been situated on the mound.

From Pypliai magnificent sights of the valley of the Nemunas and the tributary of the Nevezis can be observed.

In the pine forest, not far from J.Biliunas’ square, there is a graveyard where German soldiers, perished in World War I, were buried. Near the graveyard there is a monument to the insurgents S.Dauksa and V.Linkevicius, who were killed by Russian soldiers in June 1941.

In the park that is in the centre of Kacergine the memorial cross “Perished for Motherland” was put up in memory of the post-war victims. The park is also the place where state and patriotic festivals are held.

A memorial stone “To the sons of Lithuania” (to the post-war partisans) was unveiled near the chapel in 1994. On the stone the names of ten partisans perished for freedom are chiseled.

Art lovers can visit the house of a gifted artist A.Martinaitis and see his works.

The people, who like to spend their rest actively in nature, can go fishing in the Nemunas or pick berries or mushrooms in the forest. In winter they can go skiing in a beautiful pine forest. There are two campsites “Apuokyne” and “Barsuokyne” in the forest. Holiday-makers can cook a steak on a barbecue there or can have stodgy food in the café “Kacerga”.
