This is a visit you should do if you like history and want to learn more. The facts are never to be forgotten and every one should take the time and respect to visit.

A deathly quiet place where an unimaginable atrocity took place. We visited as part of a guided tour by Discover Lithuania, so having someone explain all the different areas and the history made it very profound. But I would say this is more of a...More

Paneriai is an important place for contemporary Lithuania: about 100.000 people (70.000 jews) were murdered by Nazi occupants and their local allies during the WW2. Nowadays it is a park, in the forest, with a series of pits, monuments and a small museum. If the...More

Too somber a place to be! Would recommend more inside Vilnius instead. See KGB museum or churches. If you want you can see graveyards with memorials to Siberian exiles!

The small museum is a must stop with photos and videos of locals talking about the times when Jews were stripped and shot. The remains were then exhumed and destroyed to limit evidence of the massacres. Walking through the green forest calms your disbelief at...More
