Aukstaitija National Park

Aukstaitija was designated Lithuania's first national park in 1974.It covers an area of 40570 hectares in the regions of Ignalina, Utena and Svencionys.Over 70 per cent of its territory is pine stands, including the ancient woods of Azvinciai, Mincia and Linkmenos. Scattered among the woods and hills are some 100 smaller and larger lakes, often interconnected by rivulets and streams. The largest of them is Lake Dringis (721 ha). Lake Tauragnas, the deepest in Lithuania (60.5 m deep) is also here. The Baluosas features seven islands, one of which has a little lake of its own, feeding the Baluosas waters through a small stream.This is one of the most important sites in Lithuania for breeding European Roller (Coracias garrulus), and Eurasian Nightjar (Caprimulgus europaeus); Black grouse (Tetrao tetrix) and Common Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis) are also Wood Lark (Lullula arborea) and Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) also breed.
