Located in the heartland of Lithuania Minor (southwest Lithuania), once the northernmost lands of the Prussian Empire, today Bitėnai enjoys its standing as one of the bastions of the Lithuanian word. The Martynas Jankus Museum, housed in the old Bitėnai printing house, celebrates its namesake who did much to keep the language alive through the publication of books and pamphlets. If history is not your thing, Bitėnai is also located near one of the country's most sacred pagan sites, Rambynas Hill. An important ceremonial location in pagan times, the hill is now also a cherished locus for the growing neopagan movement. And it’s not a surprise that Rambynas continues to hold such significance – it provides a commanding view of the lower reaches of the River Nemunas.
