Palace in the middle of the city

This palace is a bit secluded from the main attraction of the city. It is walking distance from Vilnius Cathedral.

Had to look for a bit, and when we found it we were not to impressed. There are more beautiful and better buildings around. In cold..don't do the detour for it.

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.
