A Winter Weekend At A Lithuanian Manor

Leave the metropolitan capital of Vilnius, half a million strong, and Lithuania gets rural quickly. A getaway isn't far away.

We headed north recently, wound our way through various villages, past fallow farmland and ended up at a nice manor house, The Bistrampolis. You can read the Lordly history of the family and grounds here.

The big house, known as The Palace. Dated to 1850.

The grounds include a little lake and lots of farmland, frosted a bit this time of year. So that's how those mini wheats are made.

Open barn, known as the stack yard.

Horse pen, Manor buildings in the distance. Sleeping apple orchard.

Inviting sign, looking toward the main road.
