Veršvai Hill Fort

Raudondvario pl., Kaunas

The Veršvai Hill Fort, or Lampėdžiai Hill Fort, located in Vilijampolė on the cape of the hill chain of the right bank of the Nemunas, dates back the 14th century. According to archaeologists, a wooden castle stood there at the time and was destroyed during the battles against the German Crusaders. Thus, this hill fort is an important site in regards to the creation of the Lithuanian state.

The contemporary people of Veršvai make many contributions to the management and popularisation of the hill fort. Community celebrations, national and traditional Baltic festivals, where people from Kaunas and the guests of the city are always invited, are organised at the location.
