Riklikai Spring in Anykščiai
The district of Anykščiai boasts many areas of exceptional natural beauty and tranquillity.
The Riklikai spring is located on the right bank of the Šventoji River, in the district of Anykščiai, Kavarskas eldership, the village of Svirnai. A dreamy majestic hill, which has now turned into a swamp, gives start to a fresh water spring, which splits into three down-travelling rivulets. The northern rivulet is the most impressive as it contains the largest amount of water. The water there is squeezing through dense shrubbery while the spring area covers over 0.46 ha. No doubt that the water of the Riklikai spring is extremely clean and greatly valued by local population. The mound of Rikliai once located nearby succumbed to the impact of time, and its location today is marked by almost flat unbroken soil as well as the slowly decomposing gloomy and mystical burial mounds of Riklikai.
