Jurakalnis observation tower

The only tower to be named after a geological period (the Jurassic), Jurakalnis offers a panoramic view to the Venta river valley, taking in Jurakalnis hill and  the mounds of Papilė. So, if you are looking for a taste of how the world may have looked millions of years ago, this 15 metre tower is for you. The panorama reveals the layers of the Jurassic geological period – the era of dinosaurs. And for fossil hunters, there’s the added bonus that even today you can find mollusc shells, as well as the remains or signs of some other animals and plants which lived in water.
