Verkiai palace

This complex is not so far from Vilnius. We can call this area "Verkiai" as suburb of Vilnius. Verkiai served as the permanent summer residence of Vilnius bishops until the end of 18th century. Palace was built in the end of XVIIIth century, but the central building of the palace was pulled down on the order of a new owner, prince Ludwig Wittgenstein, who bought Verkiai in 1839.

Old view of palace


Now left just two parts of complex, this one:

and the other part:

Place of former central palace:

Survived the cellar:

So I hope someday it will be rebuilt.

Recently finished reading Norman Davies' Vanished Kingdoms, really increased my appreciation of the Lithuanian people - the section on Litva was amazing, its contribution to the Duchy and Grand Republic cannot be underestimated. And above all Lithuanians have much to be proud of, especially since their nation exists and this oldest of Indo-European peoples will keep existing.

I recently found where my mother's ancestors had lived in Lithuania, took me some time. A little estate called Kameniske near Naujas Strumaitis. My grandmother told me about the St. Peter and Paul church in that town. Amazing that all this still stands.

Great thread btw.

Are there plans to rebuild the town hall?

This town hall reminds me a little bit of recently reconstructed town hall in Pilica ( Lesser Poland). Built in the end of 16th century - destroyed during "Deluge".

TV series about Kaunas interwar architecture, which seeks UNESCO heritage site status this year (too bad, that all this series don't have Eng. subtitles, but you can skip some of the video anyway, just to look at Kaunas architectural heritage sites/buildings, build between 1918-1940).
