The Dawn of Gediminas’ City. The Oldest Preserved Wooden Building in Vilnius and its Most Unique Artefacts

  • Year of release:2023
  • Price:10.00 €

„The Vilnius Castle Hill, along with the Lower Castle with the rulers’ residence at its foot at the confluence of the Neris and Vilnia rivers, is one of the most valuable historic and archaeological complexes in Lithuania. The special geological constitution of this location and the high groundwater level have meant that particularly rare, organic artefacts, otherwise sensitive to the passage of time, have been preserved quite well, making this territory a true treasure trove of artefacts made from organic materials. Vilnius traces its origins to this very place, in the Vilnius Castles territory, its history as the centre of the Lithuanian state, its eternal capital, whose beginnings are evidenced by unique archaeological artefacts that have survived into our days.“

Secrets of the Vilnia riverside

  • Year of release:2023
  • Price:4.00 €
This is a historical detective story that introduces young readers to the history of the oldest surviving wooden building in Vilnius. The book is aimed at children aged 5-8 who like stories about people who lived long ago and want to learn about their everyday life. The story will take young readers back to the time when the children of the Grand Duke of Lithuania Gediminas played on the banks of the Vilnia, to the distant past, when the brick towers of Vilnius castles had not yet been erected, and people lived in small wooden houses on the banks of the Vilnia. The story is a work of writers' imagination, but it mentions many historical figures and facts. The little detectives will have to find out what is real and what is fictional, and the historical artefacts found by archaeologists in the book will help them understand who and how these objects speak.
