Elektrėnai Church of Mary, the Queen of Martyrs
In 1996, in Elektrėnai, there was built the Catholic Church of Mary, the Queen of Martyrs. It symbolizes the seventh century as Lithuania has been baptized. Evenings of penance and concerts of religious music are organized here.
Northeast Kazokiškės (4 km away), there is old one-street with stretching strips of land Grabijolai Village situated by the River Neris. It dates back to the mid 18th century.

Here are collected showpieces reflecting the history of the Lithuanian roads from the Roman Empire times to our days: models of buildings, tools used to build and maintain roads, cars, carriages, road signs, maps, photos, books, journals and other publications in Lithuanian and in foreign languages about road building and maintenance. Much information on development of the Lithuanian roads starting with the Amber Way and the Highroad of Žemaičiai and ending with today’s highways Vilnius-Kaunas-Klaipėda, Vilnius-Panevėžys, VIA BALTICA and others is presented in stands. An originally constructed pavilion displays pre-war and post-war machinery of road building and maintenance: from a horse-drawn road scrapper and two-furrow plough to a huge rotor-plough. You will find here also a unique, authentic horses-drawn boiler to heat bitumen made in Germany, in about 1854, fuelled by stumps and firewood, as well as many other mechanisms.
