The monastery has a little museum which is decorated in quite a unique way making it more attractive to children also I assume. The church is the best one I have seen in Lithuania..wow!!! People so nice, setting so tranquil. Please come here and have diner or lunch in the hotel. Perfect spot.

We went in January, we were the only people there, but it was magical. The building in from is a hotel which has a nice restaurant, and it can be tricky to find the door, they have to buzz you in.

This is one of two surviving Lithuania monasteries and churches ensembles. The most important element of the ensemble - the church. Pažaislis church and monastery built in the seventeenth and eighteenth century.

Visited this monastery with friends in June. We had a guide. It is absolutely amazing complex of buildings, with very rich history, exclusive interior and exterior, paintings bringing up historical moments from the Bible.
