Near the burial mounds of Salakas at the left side of the road lies a stone with signs - Napoleon Stone. Legend tells us that during Napoleon march to Moscow he ate lunch on this stone and in memory of it he ordered to carve on it a bowl and eating utensils.

In fact, Napoleon had never been in these places, and this legend is just a nice story. The stone is made of gray-pink granite and is 120x100 cm in size. It has an inscribed circle (a pan), 20x20 cm, a circle with a straight shaft (a spoon) and a straight shaft with a curved lattice (a fork). Excavating at 1 meter depth ashes were found. It is believed that the stone is Duke holdings boundary from 12–13th century.
