The Krekenava Regional Park was established in 1992 in order to preserve one of the greatest values of the Central Lithuanian Lowland – the old valley of Nevėžis with many oxbow lakes. This is the only protected area in Lithuania where you are able to see free-roaming bison herds, the forests are filled with animals and rare species of plants typical for broad-leaved forests. There are many manor sites in the territory of the Park, you can familiarize with the history of book smuggling in the Ustronė manor and admire the originally-shaped crosses carved by folk artist V. Svirskis.
The stall of the Directorate of Krekenava Regional Park takes care of preserving the cultural and natural heritage in the Regional Park and territories assigned to it, as well as the restoration and maintenance of natural habitats important for biodiversity. Attempts are made to create favourable conditions for educational tourism and to educate the public about the importance of the preserved territory, its cultural heritage, biodiversity, components of inanimate nature and protection thereof.
