Address:

This small town can be proud of St. Anthony of Padua Church built by local professionals and retaining authentic interiors. It has one of the oldest in Samogitia organs of Baroque style as of the late 18th century. St. Anthony's Feast is a much-awaited celebration.

Judrėnai town is famous for sport aviation because it is known as the homeland of the legendary pilot Steponas Darius, who flew across the Atlantic Ocean. In Darius’ village, there is the pilot's birthplace-museum with a memorial park (p. 19). The museum presents the history of Lithuanian aviation and exhibits about the life of S. Darius. In the Memorial Park, you will find a symbolic granite compass on the ground, which was designed on the prototype of the former compass, which was on the plane “Lituanica”. The homestead hosts celebrations to commemorate “Lituanica's” flight across the Atlantic.

The annual competition of humour groups “Judrėnjuokis”, held in the town, attracts crowds of people who want to laugh to heart's content. The active community of Judrėnai organizes tastings of Samogitian culinary heritage. However, the educational programme “Cheese Road” (p. 17) is of outstanding interest for majority.

Tourist camp “Misgiriai” with 1500 places is perfect for picnics, gatherings, or festivals.
