    This monument is modern looking arch with symbols “1499” above. Actually it is a date of Rokiskis foundation. First time place was mentioned in the privilege about forest harvesting.I believe arch symbolizes the change, appearance of something new, so the very end of 15th century was a time for creating new town.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Senasis dvaras is located just nearby St. Matthias church. It is probably only one eating place in big Independence square. Bar is small one, I guess about 12 sitting places. We asked locals about place to eat, and they recommended this one, but I guess there are much more nice places to eat as well, just a bit outside main square.

    We ordered a pork roast with potatoes and tea, coffee. Food was nice, but service a bit slow.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rokiskis could be easily reached by car, taking Vilnius – Panevezys autobahn, turning to Anyksciai road just after Ukmerge. In this way you could reach Anyksciai, Svedasai, Kamajai and finally Rokiskis (about 175 kilometers).

    When reaching Rokiskis, it is no problem to park car in Nepriklausomybes square for free.
