Mound of Prelomčiškė with settlement


The mound is the legacy of Yotvingians, who lived here in XIII century. It is one of the largest and most impressive mounds of Meteliai Regional Park. The mound is located on the western shore of Lake Dusia. At the foot of the mound was a big Jotvingiai settlement, and on the mound stood a well-fortified wooden castle. The spectacular panorama of Lake Dusia can be seen from the top of the mound. Every July a celebration of Oninės is held by this mound.
