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.
