Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania: History Revived

A great reminder of Lithuania’s ancient past, the palace tells the story of the country’s growth and emergence. It offers a special treat for all romantics – a charming place for walks and relaxation in a restored Renaissance garden founded in the 16th century by Bona Sforca, the Queen of Poland and Grand Duchess of Lithuania.

A few hundred years ago, the garden probably served as a backdrop to the Grand Duke of Lithuania Sigismund II Augustus confessions of love to his wife Barbara Radziwill. Today, the garden still serves as a refuge for lovers in the heart of the city. Myrtles, oranges, and paradise apples bloom here, creating a Mediterranean atmosphere.
