There is a lovely arched-type pedestrian bridge at the mouth of the Ratnyčėlė River. The Ratnyčėlė flows out of Latas Lake and is 33 kilometres long. It is particularly beautiful and noisy at the confluence with the Nemunas. The coastline is characterised by extraordinary beauty with large black alders, and it is a popular place to go for a walk – especially along the Love Trail that goes from the mouth of the river to the bridge across M. K. Čiurlionis Street. This bridge is decorated with the Ratnyčėlė sculpture that was built in 1962 (by the sculptor B. Vyšniauskas).
Jacques Lipchitz was one of the most famous artists to have lived in Lithuania, and was a prominent representative of cubism. Although he was born in 1891 in Druskininkai into the Litvak family, he became better known abroad than in Lithuania. The whole exhibition in the Lipchitz sculpture park was created at symposiums named in his honour.
Ilgis Lake is located in the Grūtas settlement, which is known for its exhibition of Soviet sculptures in Grūtas Park. The lake’s beaches are very clean, with piers, recreation areas, a forest surrounding the lake and rural homestead tourist accommodation nearby. Ilgis has a great variety of fish, including carp, pike and catfish, so this lake is ideal for those who love fishing.
