The first mention of Dubingiai was made in written records of 14th century. The castle and the church built on an island in Lake Asveja in the times of Vytautas the Great (15th century) fell into decay at the end of of 18th century. Now the island is linked to the shore by an isthmus. Only a few remains of the former constructions remind us of those old times. The town of Dubingiai, once famous for its paper mill and textile factory, was destroyed during a war in the middle of the 17th century. Water takes up one fifth of the park. The narrow Lake Asveja with its several islands, high wooded banks and picturesque channels stretches for 22 kilometers. In a wildlife sanctuary in an isthmus of the lake is an old oak forest.
