Platelių lankytojų centro pirmame aukšte pristatoma ekspozicija „Keliaukime aplink Platelių ežerą“, kurioje galima susipažinti su Platelių ežeru (jo susiformavimu, dugno reljefu, povandeniniu pasauliu), vandens pramogomis, lankomomis parko vietomis, pažintiniais takais. Čia taip pat įrengta ekspozicija „Pasėrokoukem žemaitėškā“, kuri pristato išskirtinį kultūros paveldą (tradicines Užgavėnes ir Jonines, du Kryžiaus kelius, žemaičių tarmę).
After arriving at Plateliai, notice the dark brown wooden house with a sloping Samogitian roof in the center of the town. Do not be fooled by the outside of the hundred-year old building – inside it is the national park’s visitor center with a modern exhibition, which includes touch screens, sound effects, natural games and descriptions of various routes and points of interest.
Inside, your attention will be grabbed by the three-dimensional model of Plateliai Lake, which shows the impressive differences in the lake’s depth, which are hard to notice when you are at the lake. By browsing the droplet-shaped windows, you will get to know the sights of the lake and its surroundings as well as where the names of the islands originate from. After coming up to the second floor, look up and listen – what do you hear? You are met by the inhabitants of Zemaitija forests and meadows. Have you seen the footprint of a hedgehog? Where are butterflies’ ears? Which birds are the biggest sleepers? Here you will find the answers to these and other questions. In the farthest corner of the room, visit the beaver’s habitat. Listen to the night sounds of forests and try to guess the names of the plants stored in the colored flasks by smelling them.
If you are still having a difficult time deciding which way to go, ask the employees of the visitor center for advice. Examine the map of Zemaitija National Park hanging in front of the entrance, which illustrates various sightseeing trails as well as the most important heritage objects, museums and viewpoints. Grab some leaflets with descriptions of locations and objects and prepare for unforgettable experiences in nature!
