Bakainiai mound is one of the pearls of Krekenava Regional Park pearl. The mound, encircled by Liaudė River on three sides, remembers the times of battles with crusaders. The mound complex consists of the castle hill, where once upon a time a wooden castle stood, the fore-work and the lower ward with defensive ramparts. In the land of plains you will be surprised to see the steep slopes, the height of which reaches 19 meters and the view of the surroundings, opening before your eyes from the rampart of the fore-work.
It is believed that the castle was burnt down in 1372 by the crusaders, but the forms of the ramparts built in the medieval times remain till these days. To this day the cultural life is intense here: it is a place for local community meetings, cultural events, and bonfires are lit here during the state holidays. The mound is open to visitors all year round. You can find its direction sign on the the road Krekenava- Kėdainiai.
