Our World's Largest Mushrooms...

No Alice, you're not in Wonderland.
Welcome to Mushroom Park, the site of the World’s Largest Mushrooms, a giant replica sculpture of the tricholoma uspale mushroom, a mushroom that grows wild in the area and is often used dried or cooked as a traditional ingredient in the ethnic dishes of the region.

A mushroom statue may not make a lot of sense in some parts of the world, but in Vilna, where mushroom hunting has been a tradition since the early Ukrainian settlers arrived in the early 1900's, it was a logical choice. Located 1 block east of Main Street. (Bring your camera!)
