Wedding Hill (Utena)

There is a tradition after the wedding ceremony to go on the small hill located near the Utena city. This hill is called “wedding hill”. It is located only one kilometer to the north from Utena by the Utena weir. In the late 90's some artist made wooden statues imitating traditional Lithuanian wedding ceremony. Statues are located around little park. Traditionally bridegroom carries bride over the bridge which is in front of the hill. This place is interesting, you can see newlyweds there, not only statues, hill, or the lake.
