I too was trying to look at the bricks. Well, maybe Renaissance. But in Lithuania, there was an interesting phenomenon, when one building was built in two or even three styles at once. Anyway, I know absolutely nothing about Kruonis castle.

Exquisite church - interesting design.

Classical columns and dome with traditional Roman Catholic portraits and altar. I have never seen this before.

One of example how during XIX c. occupation and soviet times was destroyed one of historical centre in Lithuania - Merkinė.

Firstly let's back to middle ages.
Fortress mound.
Here was built wooden castle, which became one of most important defence point near Nemunas river against Teutonic knights.







After the Battle of Grunwald castle lost its importance as defence point and left as residence of Grand Duke. In the end of XV c. in centre of town was built the palace of grand duke and little by little castle disappeared from the town's skyline. Left only mound, which most part during XIX c. was washed by river.



Until 1655 war against Moscow and Sweden, city became one of most important cultural and commercial centre in Lithuania propria. Here a lot of time spent king of Poland and grand duke of Lithuania Władysław IV Vasa, also here he died in his palace which was in the town square.
After 1655 war, in town left only 20-25% of the former population. During Nordic war city also was destroyed and city rights lost in 1795. It coincided with the Russian Empire occupation. During XIX c. almost all heritage was destroyed... In XVIII c. Swiss traveler mentioned town as town of churches and large buildings, in XIX c. T. Triplin saw only the ruins. Survived only one baroque church.

In the town square.
Here in XVI c. was built city hall, building was demolished in the end of XIX c. In former city hall site was built ortodox church, as result of russification policy.





That's how it seems now the place where was Dominican church (built in XVII c.).



Another example, place of St. Peter's Church (built in the end of XVII c.)



In this place now there is cemetery of Soviet soldiers. All monuments for Soviets in Lithuania now are demolished, left just small examples like this.



Place of former manor



Where you see yellow house, in XVIII c. is mentioned, that in this place was a two-storey palace.



Survived gothic-baroque church (built in XV c., reconstructed in XVII c.)
