This Soviet-theme park was created in the wetlands of Dzūkija National Park and is recognized as as one of the top ten weirdest museums in the world. The exhibition reveals the negative content of the Soviet ideology, it’s impact on the value system and allows the Lithuanian people, visitors coming to our country and future generations to see the naked Soviet ideology which was suppressing and hurting the spirit of our nation for many decades. The park has more than 100 pompous sculptures of Soviet political leaders. They reveal the comically hyperbolic Soviet political cult worship. Upon arrival to Grutas Park, you can also visit the art gallery, museums, the exhibitions of which reveal that craftily designed Soviet propaganda machine, which was damaging the modern society from birth to death.

Thanks to our guide Andrius, we learned a lot about what living in the rural Lithuania was like over the past century or more. We learned the some of the small towns continue to be lived in as they have been over the centuries. We especially liked visiting Zervinos and learning about Lithuanian traditions that live on. We also had the opportunity to visit Grutas Park, which presented a disturbing look at life under Soviet rule after the end of WWII.

Trip Out of Vilnius
Basically, a nice, leisurely trip .. good for a chance to see more of the Lithuanian countryside. Trip went to forest area that excelled in wild mushrooms and berries. Tour included trip to outdoor museum of Soviet-era sculptures .. interesting to a point, but no need to see the entire park. Had lunhch in the “Soviet diner” that was only minimally tasty.
