The team of Panevežys Development Agency invites you to a trip along the history and the present of Panevežys industry. Industrial tourism is a rapidly growing tourism trend in the world, presenting industrial production and events. This trend includes visits to existing companies and industrial heritage sites, offering visitors an experience of products, manufacturing processes, applications, and history. Works of art and performances can be enjoyed at the industrial heritage sites as well.

Panevežys is famous for its industry and invites you to discover the city of the beaten track! The oldest industrial company in the city, Kalnapilis, is the only company in Lithuania that has never stopped producing beer since its establishment, and the former soap factory with one tank was making as much as 3,000 kilograms of soap per day. Over time, and as circumstances change, some places previously used for industry are now opening their doors to culture as well.

In 2020, UAB Aukštaitijos Vandenys organised the exhibition Face of Water and provides educations in its underground reservoir.

The Aukštaitija narrow gauge railway organises excursions, educations, tastings, and celebrations on a regular basis.
