I didn’t rich the centre of the town yet. I didn’t want to do this because there was a long weekend in Lithuania, and many people came here to rest and breathe fresh air. Maybe this week, I’ll visit Lake Druskonis and see blooming Daffodils and Sakuras on its bench. For now, I only walked around my neighbourhood along the River Nemunas and the famous Druskininkai pine forests.
The soil of Southern Lithuania is sand on which juniper, pine trees and mushrooms grow well. The banks of the Nemunas are high, and the sand settles si, helped by the wind and rain. For this reason, it is often possible to see pine trees on the banks of the Nemunas, which are held upright by only one deep-set root. The rest of them grow flat, and these pines stand even when there isn’t much soil under them.
My native town Druskininkai is located in the South of Lithuania on the right river Nemunas bank. Surrounded by the pine forest, it is green and white in April – May. Druskininkai is a health resort which attracts people through mineral water springs and curative mood. For me, the greatest asset of this city is the clean air. I’m dizzy from this air and feel weak. I think this is not matter, and I still walk every free moment. Druskininkai is green and white in May, so here are some photos from this town.
I was in Prague for the third time and didn’t get to see everything. For example, we didn’t have time to see the gardens below Prague Castle, but we did visit the Royal Garden. So in today’s post – the originally Renaissance garden was founded in 1534 and is located on the site of old medieval vineyards. Currently, the garden follows the tradition of an “English-style” park created there in the middle of the 19th century. It also contains elements of Renaissance character and Baroque (ornamental flower beds).
Last weekend I spent in my native town – Druskininkai, Lithuania. It is a resort based on natural salt springs and curable mud. Located on the right bank of the river Nemunas in pine woods, Druskininkai is proud of its nature, especially in April, when daffodils and sakura trees bloom around the Druskonis lake in the centre of the town. Thus, some photos from there.
