It’s easy to get here. Just take the train and back. You need about 90 minutes to take it all in and I just had to wait 30 minutes for the train to arrive to take me back to Vilnius. There are several pits where...More
100,000 people were murdered in the Ponar Forest by the Nazis. But don't bother going there without a private guide. The "memorial" offers zero explanation. You could wander around in the forest, coming upon some pits in the ground and a couple of stone edifices....More
This country has a rich and solemn history, filled with things to mourn and other experiences to celebrate. This is a monument to those who were killed in the war, represented in a way that will remind you that this can and should never happen...More
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

To get to the death camp: get the train from Vilnius to Paneriai (a small station attached to a small village). When you get off the train, stay the same side of the railway as you arrived on, and there is a small road which goes to the right in parallel to the railway, maybe 25 metres away. Walk in the direction the train goes, i.e. turn to the right. Walk for 1 km through the little village, into the forest. After 1km you start to see the memorials and, to the right of the path, in a forest clearing, you have the information hut. Do not turn right to go across the railway track, stay ahead and left. I hope you see what you want, it is very important.
