We went past the palace twice but unfortunately did not have time to explore in.more depth. The Palace is beautiful especially illuminated at night. Due to its rich history definitely worth a visit.

This building dates back to 14 cent (in much more modest way) used by the Vilnius first Bishop. Changing it's appearance through centuries it was used first by Catholic clergy, and then after the partition of Polish-Lithaunian state it became the residence of Russia's tsarist governors of Vilnius. Today, this beautiful and expanded Classic edifice is used by the president... More

The Presidential Palace, located in Vilnius Old Town, is the official office and eventual official residence of the President of Lithuania. The palace dates back to the 14th century and during its history it has undergone various reconstructions, supervised by prominent architects. In 1997 the palace became the official seat of the President of Lithuania.

If you are in Vilnius on a Sunday. The visit the palace at 12 noon. Soldiers march to the flags and meticulously change the flags, I felt honoured to have seen this event.

We wanted to visit the Presidential palace, but when we got into the gardens after the security check we couldn´t really figue out if it´s possible to go inside the palace or not. So we just walked through the gardens and left since there ws no clear marking where is the entrance.

The entry to the presidential palace was not possible, but to the presidential palace garden/yard. That is free, we only needed go through a security check. The yard inside made it possible to walk around the palace, enter the back garden (beautiful) and see the palace area. Very nice and a relaxing time when you sit down and enjoy the... More
