Utena county, in the northeast of Lithuania, is one of the oldest settled areas of the country, and today is the second most popular destination for tourists after the seaside....

There are many lakes and rivers in the area, including Lake Asveja and Lake Tauragnas which are the country’s longest and deepest lakes, making this county ideal for water sports. Also for nature lovers is Aukštaitija National Park, along with other regional parks. The city of Moletai is a popular holiday location for those wanting a getaway from the capital of Vilnius. For those interested in outer space, we suggest paying a visit to the Molėtai Astronomical Observatory and the Lithuanian Museum of Ethnocosmology, which features exhibits on anything and everything related to cosmology and astronomy.
