Place

LAVYSABALE is a dry swamp in the midst of beautifull forests of Dzukija district located between Mergezeris, Ziurai and Lavysas villages, between Varena and Marcinkonys towns. There’s a big clear pond in festival area, cosy to swim. 15 minutes by feet through the forest you can reach beautifull lake of Lavysas. Forest is full with mushrooms, berries, etc.

 

Coming by car:
Just as you enter Varena (the 2nd one, not Senoji Varena), turn right on the first traffic lights following direction Marcinkonys. Drive straight for 8 km and find a sign pointing “NEMUNO BURIO PARTIZANU ZUTIES VIETA” pointing to the right. Take the turn and follow forest road for a couple km until you reach a crossroad with “resting point” and Swampfest sign telling you to turn left. Couple more km and you’ll find another sign telling that Swampfest is on your left. Welcome.

Coming by public transport:
Here we have a couple options. You can take a bus from Vilnius to Perloja (Druskininkai direction) and then walk 6 km through forest to Lavysabale. In Perloja you need to go to the town center and following the road besides church and cemetery find a bridge through Merkys river. After you cross the river follow the map and Swampfest signs.

You can as well take a buss to Varena, or even better, take a train to Varena and bring your bicycle – less walking, more fun.
