Vilnius Day at the Palace of the Grand Dukes

Let’s celebrate Vilnius’s 700th birthday by taking a fresh look at the history of the Lithuanian capital. At the real tower of Gediminas in the Palace of the Grand Dukes, we’ll hear the letters of Gediminas read and find out what message the Grand Duke of Lithuania sent to distant lands. In the Grand Courtyard of the Palace of the Grand Dukes, we’ll unveil a symbolic letter of Gediminas made of bronze to mark the anniversary. Virtual reality will take us to 3D Vilnius – we’ll see what the tower looked like during the times of Grand Duke of Lithuania Gediminas (1316-1341). At the Dawn of the City of Gediminas. The Oldest Wooden Building in Vilnius and its Most Unique Finds exhibition, we’ll be able to see the fragments of a building that stood on the slope of Gediminas Hill 750 years ago, as well as the belongings of a person in the ruler’s circle that have survived to this day.

The Palace of the Grand Dukes museum educators invite families with children of all ages to Vilnius’s birthday party. The museum will be offering special activities for kids where they will learn about the beginning of the history of the city’s castles and recall the legend of the founding of Vilnius. Older visitors will congratulate the city by creating a card or writing a letter from Vilnius, just like Grand Duke Gediminas did 700 years ago. And everyone who likes stories will be invited to listen to the story of Gediminas’s family and his children and grandchildren.
