Utena – the capital of East Upper Lithuania. This is probably the only one city in Lithuania having two lakes – Dauniškis and Vyžuonaitis, wedged between the streets and houses. In the playgrounds of Dauniškis Lake coats the voices of happy children crow and people advanced in years find here the peace and oasis of fresh air. In 2011 Utena had celebrated the anniversary of 750 years. On the occasion of this holiday Dauniškis Lake had spruced with shining and playing fountain with water screen.
