Golf capital between four capitals
From time immemorial, people have been attracted to places filled with the spirit of greatness. Nature and history have left a strong impression on this land, surrounded by the scents of the Aukštaitija hills and Dzūkija forests. The sliding glaciers in the area have shaped the ground so that it is ideal for a golf course. Now there is Pipiriškės Geomorphological Reserve protected by the state. Already in the 3rd century here, between Zapurvis and Pasamanė lakes, there was a settlement with Juodakalnis mound. All four historical capitals of Lithuania – Kernavė, Trakai, Kaunas and Vilnius – are located at almost equal distance around this impressive patch of land. Once upon a time in these hills, fields and forests, the nobles of Kernavė and Old Trakai used to hunt; today, this natural wonder can be enjoyed by golfers from Lithuania and around the world.
