Sventoji Things to Do

  • Monkey bridge

    It is quite popular bridge here, connecting two sides of Sventoji river. By the way, Sventoji also takes name from river, also word "sventas" in Lithuanian means "saint".Bridge was probably constructed in Soviet times, as my parents told it already existed when I was very young. Bridge is swinging; youth tends to jump from it into the water.

  • Sculpture "Daughters of fisherman"

    Sculpture "Daughters of fisherman" created in 1982 by Zuzana Pranaityte. The sculpture tells a story how daughters wait for their father fisherman to come back from the sea. In my personal point of view, it is one of the most interesting and fit-to-landscape sculptures in Lithuania. Looks like this piece of art left Soviet style behind.

  • Church of St. Maria, a Star of the Sea

    Wooden church existed in Sventoji already in interwar times. The modern church that could be seen nowadays was built in 1991. It is one of the accents of Sventoji, quite tall one, easily visible at panorama. Anyway, as I am not too much modern art lover, church looks too simply and a bit soviet for me.

Sventoji Transportation

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was using car traveling to Sventoji. The route from Vilnius was enlarged, as I wanted also to see Nemunas bank small towns (Veliuona, Vytenai...). In other case, it is just possible to go Vilnius - Kaunas - Klaipeda autobahn, later take road to North through Palanga. Sventoji is about at border with Latvia. Anyway, to take public transportation to Sventoji is no problem at all also.
