The rise of manors
It is no secret that in Lithuania, manor houses had deteriorated. However, after the restoration of independence, a significant number of them were revived for “a new life.” Now, manors once again delight the country’s residents and guests from abroad. Every manor is fascinating with its history, unique face and new owners, who strive to accommodate guests, cater to their needs and create pleasant and unforgettable memories. After the festive New Year’s celebrations, manors now prepare for an influx of guests in 2020.
