about

Many have affection for Druskininkai for quite different reasons – it is an ideal place for those who fancy riding the bicycle. You choose the route on your own. It depends on your fitness and your wishes. Residents of Druskininkai are proud to offer even four official cycling trails – Saulės, Žilvino, Nemuno and "Žvaigždžių orbitos". It’s so convenient to go sightseeing or escape the city through cycling and find a place for yourself in nature – on Druskonis Lake shore, in the Vijūnėlės Park or further in the depths of woods as far as Mergelių akys (Eyes of Maidens) tiny lake.

If you wish to relax much more, choose riding along the Nemunas River. Thus, going from the Water Amusement Park towards the town, you will have lots of opportunities to stop and look at the Nemunas River peacefully flowing, then go down to the quick influx of the Ratnyčia River and visit the oak of the First Marshal of Poland Józef Pilsudski. It is comforting to know that this famous man used to sit under this tree and enjoy the scenic view of these places. Indeed, why not? Let’s occupy this seat!...

Any excursion to the "Girios aidas" (The Echo of Woods) Forestry Museum farther away from the centre, or any opportunity to organize a picnic on the shores of Latežeris Lake found at the end of the Sun Path shall be quite an idea for those who do not want to become overworked and tired, still intend to exercise more actively.

Upon visiting Druskininkai Gydyklų Park, being on Druskonis shore and everywhere in the most beautiful or most interesting locations in the SPA town you will find spaces to put your bicycle conveniently. Therefore, we urge you that after entering Druskininkai, you leave your vehicle in the parking lot and enjoy the ecological transportation mean – your own bicycle. Shortly, while cycling, you will be overwhelmed by the beautiful scenery around and dart with the wind – the free combination of fragrance of pine trees, flowers and river, all refreshing.
