Paežeriai Manor Palace

It is an unexpected small Paris in Lithuania, the region of Sudovia. It is also an unexpected combination of the architectural styles of Baroque and Classicism. The alley of chestnut trees leading to Paežeriai Manor Palace could tell a story about both glorious and miserable days of the manor homestead. Marcin Knackfus, Professor of Vilnius University and the pioneer of Classicist architecture in Lithuania, designed Paežeriai residence to wealthy landlords Zabiełło. The perfect harmony of proportions, muses dancing on the ceilings, authentic parquet, a dance hall with a balcony for musicians, an old park near the lake.
