Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.Museum of ancient beekeeping is a favourite place in the Aukštaitija National Park. The museum was established in 1984. Its staff will tell about the beekeeping history in Lithuania from ancient times until today. One bee family lives in the sculpture of Bee God Bubilas. You can taste the honey they have collected. Just remember that it takes a whole day for 200 bees to gather just one spoon of honey. Ginučiai mill is the only water-mill in the park with preserved original equipment. The Water-mill operated until 1968, producing not just flour but also electricity for Ginučiai village. Today it is a technical monument of the 19th century. The display on the top floor tells about the way that bread passes to our table. Former miller's apartments were turned into accommodation for visitors who may find visits of the devil living in the Ginučiai Water-mill.
