The wooden tavern was built here in 1842 by Boleslovas Tiskevicius. The building is easily recognized – it is just entrancing Dubingiai, near the street. The tavern is wooden, with small windows, high basement.
Nowadays tavern is used as the centre of visitors of Asveja Regional Park, direction of the same park works here as well.
Bridges through lakes are quite rare thing in Lithuania. Some parts of Asveja lake are narrow, here lake looks more like a river. Dubingiai haven’t got its bridge till interwar period (1920-1940), when President A. Smetona gave permission to built here wooden bridge. One of main reasons, as I think, was due to its villa on Dubingiai mound. For some time before the lake ussualy was crossed by small ferry.
This was the simplest church I ever seen. Actually first, I got to think here is a wooden house, but later locals said it is Dubingiai church. It looks like just a cross was put on tipycal wooden house. As village is small, church of St. George here was built only in 1958.
Near the church you could see the old wooden tower, at the entrance of cemetery. It is said the tower was used for a mass before building church.
Giedraiciai is known from the first half of 17th century. For a long time it was a land of Giedraiciai family, most possibly the name of town is taken as a family name.
Place is now known for church of St. Bartholomew (1809), monument for people, who died in 1920 for freedom of Lithuania. This side of Lithuania together with Sirvintos was the main front to fight against Polish army, who already had taken capital Vilnius.
Giedraiciai is about 13 kilometers away from Dubingiai.
Joniskis of Moletu r. is known from 16th century. Small town is located near beautifully looking Arinas lake. Here you could see folk – baroque style church of Jacob. It was built in 1848, probably reconstructed from former church (year of 1726). As it is provided in guides, church probably one of the most profound folk baroque churches in Lithuania.
Joniskis is about 10 kilometers away from Dubingiai.
