http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/1137 View of Kernave mounds. Kernave is the first capital of Lithuania. Currently it's an archeological reserve and UNESCO World Heritage site. The first human settlements in Kernave appeared around 11000 years ago. During 12th-14th centuries it was a big well defended town and important trade center. However, it was destroyed in 1390 and never rebuilt. Presently only few defensive mounds remain.
