Kernave, Lithuania



Kernavė, located in southeast Lithuania, was a medieval capital of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and today is a tourist attraction and an archeological site.  A Lithuanian state cultural reserve was established in Kernavė in 1989. In 2004 Kernavė Archaeological Site was included into UNESCO world heritage list – “Kernavė Archaeological Site”. Thanks a lot to my friend Lina from Lithuania, who sent me this beautiful postcard from her hometown Kaunas. The stamp is well-matched too, much appreciated!
