584 km

The vast majority of the old military objects are also part of the natural heritage as they are located in national parks, recreational forests and nature reserves. It is interesting to note that a considerable number of defensive military objects were established by foreign countries that were in control of Lithuania at that time. Kaunas is surrounded by military forts established by Tsarist Russia, Nazi Germany‘s defensive fortifications are located on the Baltic Sea coast and a nuclear missile base was established in Plokštinė by the Soviets. We invite you to explore these and other objects by selecting the general route and the best thing is that you‘ll get to explore the nature too!
