Nestled on Lake Vištytis' northwestern shore, this town preserves its 19thcentury street structure and market square. Vištytis boasts one of Lithuania's few operational windpowered flour mills, now a visitor center offering insights into traditional milling.
Located on the northwestern shore of Lake Vištytis, at Lithuania’s southwestern border, this is a pictureperfect town that just begs for a visit. Firstly, the town itself has managed to preserve and retain the same street structure and market square it had in the 19th century. Not only that, Vištytis also contains one of the few surviving and operational windpowered flour mills in the country. It has now been transformed into a visitor centre where you can learn how flour was traditionally milled, as well as find out more about the surrounding area. Visitors can also climb to the heights of the windmill’s tower, from where they can survey the beauty of the local lake and landscape. And speaking of observation points, visitors can wander up Pavištytis Hill, which offers handsome views of the lake and its environs. The lake itself, which is one of the largest in the country, is the destination for as many as 15 tributaries that flow from the surrounding countryside. The area is also home to the remnants of a number of hill forts, evidence of the strategic importance that Vištytis has held over the centuries.
