Bakainiai Mound Complex, consisting of a castle hill with two fore-works and defensive ramparts, is one of the largest mounds in our district providing beautiful views of nature.
Mounds, or hillforts, are the best known and the most beautiful archaeological monuments in Lithuania. Their total number approaches one thousand. Lithuania has more hillforts than our neighbouring countries.
Studies have shown that there was a foot settlement 1 km to the north from the mound, where smooth surface molded ceramics were discovered. The mound dates back to the I millennium– beginning of the II millenium.
