According to legend, there once stood a castle on the banks of the Nemunas at Liškiava, close to where modern-day Druskininkai stands. One day the lord of the castle had a grand day’s hunting, and, according to pagan principles shot a hawk to keep the Gods content. For reasons lost to the mists of time, the hawk plunged into the river, followed by the lord, of whom the latter promptly vanished. His wife ran up and down the riverbank in tears, and where her tears landed, great salty springs sprung up.
