If you ever find yourself in Žemaitija, don’t miss out on visiting the fabled Lake Plateliai, known for its picturesque shores. The locals will probably advise you against going for a swim at night, though, for even if the moaning sounds coming from the lake’s pitch-black depths fail to get you – the long-haired, malevolent woodland spirits just might! During the day, however, the lake, situated within the Žemaitija National Park, is an irresistible draw to locals and tourists alike. Its bays and peninsulas contain numerous recreational areas, rural cabins and hotels – all surrounded by a snaking bicycle path that will lead you to the choicest bathing spots.
