Ethnographical Hut and Sky Observation Post

At Ethnographical Hut and Sky Observation Post, situated near the lake Lenktinis, you will have an opportunity to dive into the history of astronomy and experience the importance of the ancient process of sky observation.

Sky Observation Post was opened in 1996. Counting time using 10 wooden pillars and a stone altar in the middle, is an unforgettable experience. These pillars mark Cardinal Directions and sunrise and sunset azimuths during the most important holidays.

Main Hut, a traditional Aukštaičiai cottage, was built in 2014. Here you can learn about all kinds of folk art and traditional Baltic holidays and festivals.

Jonas Vaiškūnas is the leader and founder of this magical place, who will gladly introduce you to ethno- and archeo- astronomy, ancient methods of sky observation, time counting, and the Baltic Zodiac. Also, a replica of an ancient Temple of god Perkūnas is being built here.

An ancient Spring Holiday Jorė is being celebrated here since 1997 on the last weekend of April. During Jorė, The Hut and it‘s surroundings becomes a clamouring 300 and more people celebration.

Ethnographical Hut and Sky Observation Post‘s territory is also available for rent for your personal celebration, e.g. birthdays, weddings, etc. The coast of lake Lenktinis is an exceptionally pretty sight, and is completely surrounded by the glorious Labanoras woods.
