Standing tall in the Dzūkija National Park, the Merkinė Observation Tower is a unique 26-meter-high structure nicknamed "Pine Grove." This name comes from its design, which blends in with the surrounding forest. Its five brown columns resemble the trunks of nearby pines, and the stairs wind upwards like forest trails, leading to observation decks that offer breathtaking views.

This name comes from its design, which blends in with the surrounding forest. Its five brown columns resemble the trunks of nearby pines, and the stairs wind upwards like forest trails, leading to observation decks that offer breathtaking views. From the confluence of the Nemunas and Merkis rivers to the enchanting Pastraujo Island and the historic Merkinė Church, the vistas are truly awe-inspiring. And as the sun sets, painting the Nemunas waters gold, the view becomes especially magical.
