About the route

Rumsiskes – Ciobiskis – Griciunai (106 km)

 The route is in the direction of Kaisiadorys district - Sirvintos district. Route duration is 11 hours.

Delicious route! Delicious, because the first stop is gingerbread! It was baked in Lithuania not only for Christmas, but also for other celebrations. The gingerbread was traded in the markets and fairs. Every cook is trying to give the gingerbread an attractive, more interesting form, decorated with coloured sweet filler. It is especially useful to visit the “Festive Gingerbread Baking and Decoration” education event before the holidays. This is a great opportunity to upgrade your cooking skills.

After travelling one hour towards Griciunai, it is likely to see the herd of white goats. They eat grass, give milk from which various kinds of cheese are produced. Various educational programs on goat cheese are organized in this village with a wide range of games and entertainment. It’s really not sad here and memories remain for a long time.

Do not be lazy to drive 30 kilometres more and in the direction of Ciobiskis and you will smell the mushrooms, but not those who grow in the forests of Dzukija. Fermented mushroom shaped gingerbreads are baked in the Sirvintos district. The housewife will teach how to knead the dough and to form cookies during cooking education session.
