Tale about Vanagkalns
The story goes that in ancient times there was a castle in Vanagkalns. One time the owner of the castle had gone to see his fields. When the landlord had left the castle, suddenly a strong storm began. Following a grand thunder strike the castle sank. It sank together with the landlord’s family and servants who had stayed inside. Returning home, the landlord saw only a large, flat pit.
The people of Baldone call this place the “Bowl’s bottom”.
