Please book a guided tour in advance. Otherwise you wont be able to understand what happened in Paneriai.

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
