Panemunė Castle

It is one of the most authentic Lithuanian castles. Passing time has little changed its architecture, and the project of the then famous architect Peter Nonhart is considered to be perfect. Reserved and at the same time majestic shapes witness the ambitions and majesty of the noble Eperjesz family from Hungary, which shrank with years. The castle was reconstructed by its new owner Antanas Gelgaudas, the standard-bearer of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. Today the castle organises art exhibitions and theatricalised performances.
