Taujėnai airfield was an airfield 83 kilometers north-northwest of Vilnius, Lithuania. 
The airfield was built by order of the Lithuanian SSR (a state within the Soviet Union) Council of Ministers in the 1975-1985 timeframe. It was used for agricultural activities by state-run Aeroflot.
It consisted of a small runway, a taxiway and a small parking area to the southeast of the runway.
After Lithuanian independence in 1990 the airfield was abandoned.

No photos of the airfield while in use have been located
 
From what can be seen in Google Earth the runway is in a reasonable state. Aerial photography shows no buildings at the airfield. The northern end of the runway had some small trees that were cut in 2014/2015.
The airfield is uncertified and therefore officially closed to all traffic.

Here, we see a 2015 photo. 
The trees that were still visible in an early 2014 photo were removed soon after that photo was taken. (Google Earth)
