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

Interesting to see if you're interest is Politics but not a lot to see or do from the outside. If you walk through a courtyard at the back of the main entrance you get a good view of the back part of the palace. Tours of the inside can be arranged via email/website of the presidential palace.

This Soviet build palace currently houses the president. It is opposite the university and an easy walk from Town Square to Cathedral Square.

I was expecting something more ornate, but this Presidential Palace is nice anyway. We could not go inside, but it was worth walking past and knowing where it is.

I've had the privilege of seeing both the inside and the outside of the Palace, but I can only comment on the exterior and the gardens. The building is a beautifully restored palace with lovely gardens. Although smaller than some presidential palaces, it can certainly hold its own in the world arena. Worth seeing, especially if you time it with... More
