Žygimantas Senasis (Sigismund I the Old) reconstrated palace to renaissance style till 1530, his son Žygimantas Senasis (Sigismund II Augustus) also something changed here. During reign of Vasa dynasty (Žygimantas Vaza (Sigismund III Vasa) and Vladislaus IV Vasa) palace took some the early baroque features.Here were adopted representatives from Apostolic throne, Holy Roman Empire, Moscow, Hungury, Hungary, Turkey, Persia, France, Spain, Venice, Tuscany, Mantua, Ferrara and others. It was place were gathered Lithuanian Council of Lords, sejm. There was a rich collection of art. Here was one of richest library in Europe. Royal palace story ended in 1655, during the attack the Russian army ,Vilnius was buried, destroyed two weeks, after 1655 War during Sweden and Russia Grand Duchy of Lithuania and all Republic of Two nations have never fully recovered.

Panemunė/Gelgaudai, Vytėnai castle

Located in Western part of Lithuania, on the right bank of Nemunas river.
The initial hillfort of the Teutonic Knights (erected 1343) was replaced by a castle built in 1604-1610 and reconstructed around 1759 by Gelgaudai family. Remaining wings of the castle have been recently restored.

Raudonė castle
XVI-XVII c.
Architects: Nornhardt
Later: L. S. Gucevičius, Cesare Anichini


Located near Nemunas river, about 50 km to west from Kaunas city.
Castle construction works started in late 16th century. In the 16th century the castle belonged to King Sigismund II August. A new renaissance castle was built on the ruins of the old one by a German knight, Krispin de Kirschenstein. Castle very suffered during WWI. Current view of castle is a little bit changed. Higest tower is 33,5 m which was destroyed during WWII, but rebuilt in 1965, but interior was damaged during Soviet era.

Let us look at the traditional wooden houses of Vilnius.
http://www.vsaa.lt/medine_arch_en.htm
Quote:
Building from wood dominated in our region from prehistoric times up to the II half of the XX century. Due to unique character and originality the Lithuanian wooden architectural heritage on the European level can be compared to the Lithuanian baroque. There are approximately 2000 of wooden buildings in Vilnius centre, and 200 of them are registered as protected properties.

By the way, I saw recently there was a fight over Palanga town just like in 1920s with Latvia, but this time Poland was trying to capture this sea resort.
Advancing Polish troops were throwing tombs and were using far-range relative tactics from Belarussian branch of the Family, that we, Lithuania, call Devintas vanduo nuo kisieliaus or Dešimtas kaulas nuo šikinės.

I accidentally ran at some articles and pictures and want to share them here as to settle the new dispute over Palanga just like Lord James Simpson did.

Not a fan of cemeteries like our Polish colleagues, but let it be. Here is a tomb of the former owner of the Palanga manor - Alfredas Tiškevičius.



photos: ************

Also, some extracts from Lithuanian newspapers and historical facts from other sources. This may lead some to sudden heart stroke, so be careful with this stuff. To prevent You from this, I will not translate it, but will let to put the text to the translator, so it will take more time, that will save some sensitive peoples' lifes.
P.S. Short descriptions I wrote, so be careful, they may be dangerous for Korona inhabitants.

First of all, I would like to show here an interview with Alfredas Tiškevičius.
Quote:
- Pradėjote pokalbį dar gana gražia žemaitiška šneka. Nuo to laiko, kai Jūs gyvenote Žemaitijoje, praėjo tiek metų, o šios kalbos, nors ja tėvų namuose ir nekalbėjote, neužmiršote...

- Išaugau Palangoje. Mano draugai buvo žemaičiai, tad su jais nuo mažens bendravau ir jų gimtąja kalba šnekėjau. Na, o tai, kas vaikystėje išmokta, taip greit neužsimiršta, nors jau prieš pat karą, išvykus į Kauną, retai kada prisieidavo kalbėti žemaitiškai. Ten naujieji mano bičiuliai daugiausia buvo aukštaičiai, tad su jais bendraudavome bendrine lietuvių kalba - būdavo lyg tai ir nepatogu žemaitiškai su aukštaičiu kalbėti. Žemaičių kalbos niekada neniekinau, nors dar tarpukario metais tekdavo sutikti žemaičių, kurie gėdydavosi savo gimtosios motinos kalbos... Jie manydavo, kad, kalbėdami žemaitiškai, nieko gyvenime nepasieks, nes, aukštaičiai juos laikys žemesnės kilmės žmonėmis. Man toks požiūris visai nepatiko. Dabar, atvažiavęs į Lietuvą, Žemaitiją, matau, kad vis dėlto didžioji dalis žemaičių išliko žemaičiais iki pat šiol. Tas mane labai džiugina. Na, o gyvendamas Lenkijoje, Varšuvoje, net ir lietuviškai beveik neturėjau su kuo kalbėti. Pradžioje, per karą, Lenkijoje buvo vokiečių okupacija, o po karo - pusiau rusų okupacija. Valdžia, nors ir buvo lenkiška, bet priklausė nuo rusų - įstatymai ėjo iš Maskvos. Aš žinojau, kas vyko Lietuvoje prie sovietinės valdžios 1940 metais ir po karo. Tad, Lenkijoje susiklosčius minėtoms politinėms sąlygoms, aš priėjau išvados, kad nereikia niekam aiškinti, kokia mano kilmė, kad mano jaunystė praėjo Lietuvoje. Tuo laiku niekas nebuvo tikras, kad neįvyks koks nors nesusipratimas ir Lenkija neatsidurs dar didesnėje rusų valdžioje. Tada man, grafų Tiškevičių sūnui, ko gero, būtų reikėję atsirasti Sibire...

- Kaip Jūs atsidūrėte Lenkijoje?

- 1940 metais, prieš įvedant sovietinę valdžią Lietuvoje, kartą aš su motociklu stovėjau pasienyje. Vokiečiai, pamatę mane, įtarė kažką negero ir suėmė. Kai patekau į jų kalėjimą, kišenėje nė cento neturėjau, nė muilo gabalo nebuvau pasiėmęs. Tad, kai į Lietuvą atėjo rusai, aš sėdėjau vokiečių kalėjime Tilžėje. Tuo laiku man tai buvo tikras išsigelbėjimas - rusai manęs Lietuvoje nerado ir į Sibirą neišvežė. Beje, jie netikėjo, kad aš galiu būti vokiečių kalėjime - manė, kad aš esu pabęgęs. Kai vokiečiai, pripažinę jog esu nekaltas, paleido iš kalėjimo, man jie leido apsigyventi Lenkijoje, taip jų tada vadinamoje generalinėje gubernijoje. Tada aš grįžau į pasienį, prie Bajorų, pas vieną ūkininką, kur vėliau atvyko ir mano pirmoji žmona su septynių mėnesių vaiku. Eitavičius suorganizavo žmonos pabėgimą per žalią sieną į vokiečių pusę. Tada visi trys nuvažiavome į Varšuvą. Ten gyveno žmonos šeima, tad ir mes ten pasilikome. Po to man grįžti į Lietuvą iki pat Nepriklausomybės atkūrimo jau buvo nebeįmanoma - ten manęs laukė tik represijos, trėmimas.
Full: http://www.pgm.lt/gintaro_muziejus/tiskev_interviu.htm

In short. Tiškevičius tells the journalist, from where h perfectly knows Samogitian dialect of Lithuanian. Tiškevičius tells him, how he was sad, that in Kaunas he couldn't speak in Samogitian dialect, but must use Aukshtaitian. Tells the differences of these ethnographic groups and later explains how he was sad, that there were no people to speak in Lithuanian in Warszawa, where he was forced to move, because of the threat to him in USSR.

Please breath. all. These are the facts.
http://www.pgm.lt/Istorija/grafai_tiskeviciai.htm
Quote:
Juozapo sūnus, Lenkijos kariuomenės pulkininkas Mykolas Tiškevičius (1761-1839) pirmasis susidomėjo Lietuvos pajūriu. Jis 1824 m. liepos 13 d. nusipirko Palangos valdą su Darbėnų, Grūšlaukės ir Palangos dvarais. Jo sūnus Jonas Tiškevičius (1801-1862) Biržuose įsteigė lietuvišką mokyklą, pastatė Šv. Jono Krikštytojo bažnyčią.
Jonas Tiškevičius established lithuanian language school in Biržai in the mid-19th century.

That is just heartbreaking...
Quote:
Iš Juozapo dukterų būtina paminėti Mariją Tiškevičiūtę (1871-1941). Ji garbino žirgų sportą, mėgo literatūrą, pati bandė rašyti. 1896 m. Laumės Lelivaitės slapyvardžiu „Tėvynės sarge“ paskelbė istorinę apysaką „Viskantas“, kurią į lietuvių kalbą išvertė
Kretingos vienuolyno kunigas K. Kazlauskas. Spaudos draudimo metais grafaitė gabeno uždraustą literatūrą - pasinaudodama tuo, kad rusų muitininkai ir žandarai jos karietos netikrindavo, Klaipėdoje iš sutartos vietos paimdavo lietuviškos spaudos siuntą ir parveždavo į Kretingą arba Palangą.
Quote:
1898 m. brolio dvare Kretingoje, prie ligoninėje veikusios prieglaudos ji atidarė pirmajį lietuvišką vaikų darželį.
Marija Tiškevičiūtė was smuggling banned Lithuanian books and literature. Established Lithuanian language kindergarten in 1898.

Quote:
Aleksandras Tiškevičius puikiai suprato lietuvių tautos siekius. 1897 m. Kauno gubernatoriui S. Suchodolskiui adresuotame laiške jis pasisakė už tai, kad būtų grąžinta lietuviška spauda lotyniškais rašmenimis, įrodinėjo lietuvių atžvilgiu vykdomos rusų politikos absurdiškumą. Jis nedraudė savo vežikui kartu su grafu karietoje iš Klaipėdos į Kretingą vežti uždraustos lietuviškos spaudos siuntinius. Prie dvaro veikė nelegali mokykla, kurioje tarnautojų ir miestelėnų vaikai buvo mokomi rašto, lenkų, rusų ir lietuvių kalbų, ruošiami prie pirmosios komunijos. Joje mokėsi ir grafo vaikai. Pats Aleksandras šnekėjo žemaitiškai ir siekė, kad šią kalbą išmoktų ir jo vaikai. Grafas buvo tarp tų šviesuolių, kurie apskrities centre Telšiuose 1909 m. įkūrė gimnaziją.
Quote:
1919 m. grafas buvo išrinktas I-uoju Kretingos valsčiaus tarybos pirmininku, aktyviai dalyvavo kuriant savivaldą, 1924 m. parašė ir išleido brošiūrą „Visiems lietuviams ir lietuvaitėms, kuriems rūpi Lietuvos gerovė ir reikšmė“, kurioje įrodinėja savivaldos būtinumą ir reikšmę valsčiaus gyvenime.
Was heavily criticizing the ban on Lithuanian press. Illegal Lithuanian language school was working in his manor. In 1924 wrote a book in Lithuanian "For every Lithuanian men and women, who care about the welfare and importance of the Motherland".


Quote:
Trečiasis sūnus Kazimieras Tiškevičius (1896-1941) baigė kavalerijos karo mokyklą, I-ojo pasaulinio karo metais kariavo su vokiečiais. 1918 m. įstojo savanoriu į Lietuvos kariuomenę, vadovavo I-ojo husarų pulko kulkosvaidžių eskadronui, dalyvavo kovose su bolševikais, bermontininkais ir lenkais.
Kazimieras Tiškevičius. As a volunteer joined the army of Independent Lithuania. During the wars of Independence, was fighting against Germans, Russian commies and Poles.


Quote:
Ten įstojo į Lietuvių aktyvistų frontą - pogrindinę organizaciją, kuri ruošėsi pasipriešinti okupantams. Dalyvavo 1941 m. birželio sukilime. Veždamas trofėjine rusiška mašina sunkiai sužeistus sukilėlius į ligoninę, prie Skuodo vokiečių buvo apšaudytas ir nukautas. Iš pradžių buvo palaidotas Narvydžių (Skuodo) kapinėse, o frontui nuslinkus į rytus - perkeltas į Tiškevičių šeimos koplyčią Kretingos kapinėse.
In 1941 joined patriotic Lithuanian army - Lietuvių aktyvistų frontas, that was created to resist occupants.

Please do not treat me like a troll as I was only to settle the dispute, that take up more than half of this thread (one may look back), and without a result, but only armistice.
So now it seams clear thing here and there will be no more need to come back to Palanga, Kretinga in any of the thread.

No, really, I am not against Polish names, but the arrogance of Poles, who spoil Lithuanian threads and shout, that Lithuanian nobles almost had nothing in common with Lithuania, her people, language and culture, but only like Polish conquistadors, working as gubernators, sent from Imperial Warszawa to look after "those dirty pagan peasants Lithuanas", made me to write this long, descriptive message.

The owner of that palace is a saint and martyr of heritage protection and restoration!
He resurrected the castle from scratch on his own initiative and money, without even centas, asked from the government or international funds! What a great man!

What I mean is, both your countries look quite similar, but judging from the pictures posted in this thread Lithuania looks a little bit poorer.

Thats because Lithunia is about 10x smaller then it used to be. Almost all of our biggest castles and cities are in Belarus.

like Nesvyžius


or Miras

Poland may look more wealthy because:
a) Poland is 3 times more dense country;
b) 5 times larger
and because of that: c) it has more large cities, with more inhabitants, larger demand for service for those people.
Also let us not forget about d) USSR and 50 years of destruction (1940-1990).
Poland did not have kolkhoz farms, that destroyed Lithuanian towns.
Lithuanians believe and it may be true, that during the interwar period, Lithuania was more wealthy than Poland.
Old Lithuania, for the most part lost world, can be seen here: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1465205

But the both countries today look as of around the same level. There are some things, that are better developed in Lithuania, some in Poland, but generall view is quite similar, of course bearing in mind the size and density.

But what I especially love about Lithuania is her human scale, model of a world in miniature. All things here seem cozy, close to people, comfortable, that larger countries often lack.
Will show one typical architectural/sculptural feature of Lithuanian villages soon. Cosy corners, heaven for painters and artists.

1999 m. dvaras buvo išnuomotas naujam šeimininkui Audriui Matulaičiui. Buvo restauruotas bravoro (spirito varyklos) pastatas, sutvarkyta ežero pakrantė ir dalis teritorijos. Šiuo metu restauruojamas pagrindinis pilies pastatas. Dar prieš 15 metų paveldosaugos ekspertai siūlė tris restauravimo variantus: 1) palikti rūmus tokius, kokie jie buvo išlikę iki 1940 m., kai įgijo daug klasicizmo bruožų, 2) išryškinti labiausiai išsiskiriančius elementus, 3) kiek įmanoma sugrąžinti Renesanso stilių, tūrius ir planą. A. Matulaitis pasirinko pastarąjį variantą. Restauravimo darbus prižiūri architektė Gražina Kirdeikienė, kuri dvarą tyrinėja jau apie 30 metų.

In 1999 the castle was rented to Audrys Matulaitis. He decided to recreate its Renaissance look (so he is probably is willing to rebuild another two towers). The works of restoration is supervised by architect Gražina Kirdeikienė, who is exploring the manor/castle for 30 years.

So, I promised to show one typical for Lithuanian village feature. I have problems on how to attribute these structures. Is it architecture? Is it sculpture? Neither architecture, nor sculpture. Both architecture and sculpture. Very classical for Lithuanian villages, although not unique only to Lithuania, but do have some visible differences from other countries in style.

Here are some wooden memorial structures - small chapels in villages.
In Balėnai village chappel.
