  • Palace of Grand Dukes of Lithuania - Historical and large palace.
  • Excellent experience visiting the Palace. Lithuania has a fascinating history that needs to be shared and known. The Palace or the Grand Dukes is at the center of this cultural heritage and a must see when coming through Vilnius. I definitely recommend the guided visit with Laura (in English). She was very patient and answered all our questions. Many thanks!
