Pažaislis Monastery
Best European Film Location

This is one of the most beautiful baroque ensembles in Lithuania. It was built in the 17th century for the Camaldolese Monastery under the supervision of craftsmen from Florence (Michelangelo Palloni, Joan Merli, Pietro Perti). This baroque ensemble is worth a day trip, and we think that a day might be not enough, so you’re welcome to stay in a hospitality complex located right here in the monastery if a day isn’t enough. There is also a museum located in the southern annex built in the early 18th century.

 

The Monastery was awarded as the best film location in Europe by the EUFCN (the European Film Commissions Network) in 2020.
