At a distance of 3 km from Druskininkai, there is Naujasodė village, a place where a folk artist and wood carver Antanas Česnulis has lived over 30 years. His country house at a picturesque Ratnyčėlė stream is an open air museum of wood carvings. At the entrance the visitors may explore a four storey windmill displaying the wood carver’s works.
If you go to the coastline of Ratnyčėlė stream, you will have a chance to see a unique collection of the Men of Sorrows created by Lithuanian folk artists. Stone wall niches serve as a museum for the Men of Sorrow brought from all over Lithuania. The stream bank is an open air exhibition of sculptures under the name “Man’s and tree’s life” featuring a unique combination of natural beauty and wood carvings. Visitors may also get acquainted with theatre characters. A final accent of this exhibition is a large summerhouse with tables. It displays sculptures “Duonos kelias” (“Birth of bread”). The exposition is constantly renewed by new creations.
