The Pažaislis Educational Trail stretches across the Petrašiūnai Peninsula in Kaunas, adjacent and passes the Kaunas Žalgiris Yacht Club and the famed Baroque architectural ensemble of the Pažaislis Monastery.
With a total length of about 3.6 kilometres, forming a loop, the trail can be completed on foot in approximately 2 hours. It offers the flexibility of multiple starting points, given its circular path, and visitors can leave their cars at any of the parking areas within the territory, such as the Yacht Club or near the Pažaislis Monastery, before embarking on their journey.
The trail is nestled beside the lakes and winds along the slopes, providing an extraordinary panorama of the Kauno Marios reservoir on one side, with views of the awe-inspiring Pažaislis Monastery ensemble on the other.
One of the key attractions along the Pažaislis Educational Trail is the Oak of Taikos Hill, a nationally protected natural monument. It stands as the thickest oak in the Kaunas Lagoon Regional Park, with a circumference of 5.15 metres and a height reaching 21 metres. Researchers have determined that this majestic tree is over 600 years old, making it a valuable piece of history and a must-see on this trail.
