Giant Stone of Dzūkija

Stones, Alytus district

The Giant Stone of Dzūkija stands in the young pine forest of the Vangelonys village, in the Nemunaitis district neighbourhood. This is the largest boulder in Dzūkija and the ninth largest boulder in Lithuania. It is irregularly shaped, decayed and cracked in places because, as local people tell, the lightening struck it numerous times. The length of the boulder is 7 m, the width – 4,5 m, the girth – 18 m.
