Between Presence and Memory. Historic Images of the Vilnius Castles

  • Year of release:2024
  • Price:33,00 €
The catalogue of the exhibition "Between Presence and Memory. Historic Images of the Vilnius Castles", held at the National Museum – Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania, presents a comprehensive exploration of the rich iconographic and historical material collected alongside research findings about the residence of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania and other structures within the Vilnius Castles ensemble. Serving as the pivotal political, economic and cultural centre of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania since the Middle Ages, the Vilnius Castles hold profound significance. Despite the demolition of the Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania at the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century, its historic essence was revived through the works and research of artists, photographers, architects and other authors spanning the 19th and 20th centuries.

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.“

  • Year of release:2022
  • Price:45.00 €
This catalogue is dedicated to the international exhibition "To keep the homeland. Lithuania and Poland in the epoch of the 1791 Constitution", marking the historical fate of the united Polish and Lithuanian state, the hope for the rebirth of the nation and the state that shone out in the second half of the 18th century, and the tragic outcome, which was determined by the exclusively aggressive intentions and interests of the neighbours. The year 2021 marks the 230th anniversary of the promulgation of the Constitution of 3 May and the adoption of the Act of Mutual Obligation, or the Act of Mutual Pledge, between the two nations.
