Kartena hillfort historical-archeological complex
If you travel along Kartena town, the view of Kartena hillfort which once was the centre of Ceklis land also known as the Castle, Sweden, Lūžties Hill, opens on the other bank of the river Minija. An impressive panorama of Kartena town opens from the hill. One of the legends say that once there was a castle of the King of Samogitia which was constantly attacked by enemy armies on the hill. Once the armies of Sweden and Russia that appeared to attack the castle started fighting with each other. The ruler of the castle shouted to his soldiers: "Look, there are warriors!" "(Look, there is war!)" ()Veizėkiet, karė tenā! (Žiūrėkite, karas ten!)). Thereafter the place was allegedly called Kartena.
