  HIGHER CASTLE - REMAINS OF PALACE OF RULERS
by matcrazy1
 
 

I passed by the renovated recently remains of gothic Palace of Rulers which were partly hidden below the ground as I noticed. The wall of the castle was partly made of red bricks, partly of original large stones. And as you can see on my picture (enlarge) the palace had to be rebuilt many times in the past.


Address: Arsenalo gatve 5, Vilnius
Directions: On the top of the Gediminas Hill. It was difficult to get there by funicular: read my Warnings Or Dangers tip "No direction signs to funicular!!!" here.
