The legend about the Lake Siesartis
Once upon a time the rich landlord's horse Sartis ran away. The landlord and his daughter Birutė went out to look for it and shouted out "Come, Sarti! Come Sarti! " At that time, a large cloud came and descended on that place, drowning everything around. Just on the hill where Birutė was standing remained the island, and in this way the lake got the name of Siesartis.
Siesartis is the lake in the western fringe of the forest in Molėtai district, which stretches for more than 7 km. Therefore, if you want to go around it, it is not very likely that it will be enough one short autumn day to do it, because the shoreline of the lake is very wiggly, with peninsulas and stretches more than 30 km.
So, this time, let’s take a shorter way - waterway. The Lake Siesartis is the unique one, because some of its water flows through the Lake Kamužėlis to the White and Black Lakajai and along the River Lakaja towards Žeimena. But the other water flows to the opposite direction, along the River Siesartis and reaches the River Šventoji. The lakes, which flow their water to the basins of different rivers, are called watershed lakes. Due to these features, there is established Siesartis Hydrographic Reserve. There are 6 islands in the lake with a total area of 37 ha and, according to the total area of the islands, it is one of three lakes in Lithuania which have most islands. The largest island is Birutė, just next to the gorgeous Baravykinė with a lot of the junipers. There is also tiny Tetervynė, still called the Loaf of Bread. One of the most beautiful islands is Little Love Island, which is surrounded by flowers of various colours in the summertime and seems to have been created for the arrival of two beloved ones, for the escape from the surrounding world and enjoying the serenity and beauty of the lake. Surrounding from all sides the giant lake fazes and it gets the feeling that you do not want to leave it. All the islands are of the great beauty and can be visited, but camping can quickly destroy their fragile beauty and natural value, so it is prohibited. It's a pity that not everyone understands this ...
