Utena region

A scenic home for niche industries

Track record

Utena region

Utena region is famous for being the home of the country’s largest brewery – the Carlsberg-owned Švyturys-Utena brand.

The city has a long tradition of skill and mastery in this sector. Also, as the site of the decommissioned Visaginas nuclear power plant, Utena is home to a large pool of highly skilled professionals with experience in the energy sector.

Outside of its strong industrial competences, Utena is characterised by its scenic setting and its traditions of organic food production and niche agricultural services such as horse-breeding and training.
