THE SKUDUTIŠKIS SACRED PLACE

Nature / landscape

The Skudutiškis Sacred Place is among the most famous and beautiful places of Aukštaitija, still existent. The sacred place is made up of two stones on the banks of the River Juodis – the foot of Mary and the heart of Jesus – and the spring that flows into the river. Visitors of Skudutiškis ask for health, well-being and happiness, kiss the stones and crawl around them on knees. Believers bring spring water and moss from the stones of the sacred place home. The combination of pagan rituals and Christianity gives a profound impression and a true experience of holiness.
