A nicely renovated fort in which the Lithuanian historical museum was made. You could get there by bus, but after leaving the bus you have to find your own way (through the small forest and under the highway) - there are no signs.

There was no cafe when we went last year. Take a couple of snacks and some water with you. You could easily spend anywhere between 3-5 hours there.
