What is Samogitia?

Vyko: 2017 November 25 - 25 d.

Lithuania is a place that has a lot of surprises and one of them may raise a question “What is Samogitia?” If we looked in Wikipedia, Samogitia or how Lithuanians call it – Žemaitija is one of the five ethnographic regions of Lithuania. It’s located in northwestern Lithuania. Žemaitija has a long and distinct cultural history, reflected in the existence of the Samogitian dialect.

But everything is just words… So for this reason we are inviting you to discover hidden secrets in Samogitia!

During this trip you will visit an object connected to the dark and secret Nuclear history of Lithuania – Underground Plokštinė nuclear missile base. In there you will able to see how close this base was to the launch of Soviet nuclear weapon and how everything finished rather luckily. Moreover, visiting this well renovated base and with the help of the guide, you will learn how the life in these TOP SECRET objects were.

But that’s not all! After seeing the dark side of our history, next we will go to experience something much more brighter and nicer – traditional Lithuanian sauna!

During sauna time, you will learn the true traditions and ways how Lithuanians enjoy sauna. From the professional sauna experts you will find out what is the first steam ritual and how you should properly use and enjoy salt & herb body scrubs.
