Standing on the bank of the Neris in Verkiai Regional Park, this manor ensemble entices visitors both with its rich natural world, including blooming linden trees and bats, and with its unique background of Pagan and Christian traditions.

The first message about Verkiai dates back to the end of the XIV century, when Jogaila gave it to the Bishop of Vilnius. There were no masonry buildings here until the end of the XVII century; the Verkiai Palace Ensemble was built in the XVIII century by Marcin Knackfus and Laurynas Gucevičius, the most prominent architects of that time. They did an artistic job of incorporating the Neoclassical buildings into the natural environment. Some of the buildings of the manor ensemble are still standing, including two servants' quaters, but all that is left of the palace is the vaulted cellar.
