There are more than 200 lakes in the lake district of Ignalina, and the city itself is surrounded by as many as eight. We invite you to take a walk around the most mysterious lake in the Ignalina region - Ilgis. The secret of this lake lies in its bottom, where the grove and underwater verdis hide. The most impressive is the White Spring, which is 2 m in diameter and about 3-3.5 m long. Not to mention the legendary Budris Castle, which is said to have stood where Lake Ilgis is located, and next to it is the source of Lina's tears.
