Manors

Burbiškis manor has been known since the 16th century. In 1819, the manor was acquired by the Baženskiai family who built a peculiar manor of Romanticism, Historicism and Neo-Gothic styles, reminding of a fortress. The new owners have also created an impressive, scenic 28-hectare park distinguishing itself by exceptional small architecture, ponds, tree-lined alleys, viewpoints, and islands. The park is adorned with the sculptures of Vytautas the Great and Adam Mickiewicz, for the first time created in Lithuania by Kazimieras Ulianskis. The museum established in Burbiškis manor aims to restore as accurate picture of the past as possible, conveying the old culture of manors.
